“Innovative and Attentive...A local spot”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Had the amazing vegetarian breakfast which even tempted my met eating companions....the fit out is not chic flash but more homely and friendly...the waiter was attentive and approachable, helping us feel accommodated and in good supply of coffee without being pushy. Will be back soon for sure to sample more of an amazingly diverse menu. CHEERS!

“Pleasant”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

I have this funny idea that restaurants should serve good food, have friendly and polite staff and provide a nice environment ... Thats their business, and what we are paying for, and providing these things doesn't make a restaurant 'excellent' ... The food, staff and place here is nice and quite a lovely casual, laid back atmosphere, but I didn't get any wow factor - had the eggs benedict and a mango smoothie.

“The Reviews Are True”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The service is what stood out here - attentive, positive staff who seem to enjoy their job meant the whole vibe was lovely and service was quick.

The food was sensational! Lots of gluten free options and vegetarian options too. Courtyard is lovely and on a sunny day, is perfect for a leisurely lunch (although service was quick). We had the fish of the day and the pumpkin & fetta salad - both well presented, substantial meals and so damn tasty. Pumpkin and fetta salad can be bland but here they add dukkah and balsamic - superb!

The brunch menu looks good and the full plates being taken to other diners looked amazing so a few more visits here will be on the cards!
