“Great Breakfasts”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

I really liked it here. It is quite a quirky place and quite spacious with exposed beams. Breakfast was great and the portions were good sized. Definitely worth a visit if you like a decent breakfast.

“Great food, good service”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Met friends there for a special occasion Sunday brunch. We all got a little lost trying to get there with the roadworks in the area and the one way street system, but don't let that put you off. The atmosphere was warm, friendly, relaxed and fun. 'Casual' describes the seating and the atmosphere but the food was seriously good and the coffee delish!

“Coffee coffee coffee Great coffee.”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is one very busy cafe ......and it rocks. Great breakfast and fantastic coffee. If it looks really busy....just wait you will get a table it is so worth the short wait. The French toast. Yum. They even do their own coffee beans...my only gripe that its not around the corner from me. Well done on a great cafe. Kids loved it to. We parked our car around the back and walked to the city and back also worth the experience.
