Reviewed July 10, 2014

went for brunch, food was very average, service very average, coffee not great, staff not the best either. Wouldn't go back especially after visiting so many other great cafes in Dunedin.

“Best Tea Ever”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Only place in Dunedin that sells awesome tea. Also try French toast 10/10 would bang. The bacon is crisp and done just right, and an overall good vibe with a lax setting . Not to mention the awesome customer service and friendly staff. And a dude that looks like Skrillex.

“Left feeling something was missing”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We dropped in for a quick breakfast on a week day. It wasn't a very busy time as it was less than half full. The layout is comfortable with a variety of different seating arrangements. It was also bright, pictures on the wall were interesting and overall the dining room area seemed in good order and clean. Our meal orders were taken and then we waited more than 20 minutes before the food arrived. Coffee was very strong but not of high quality, at least to my tastes. The scrambled eggs were watery and the toast was soggy as it soaked up the excess liquid. I felt that the egg was either reconstituted from powdered egg or eggs were beaten too much with too much liquid (hopefully milk) so as to result in a homogeneous mass. Anyway, i wouldn't recommend the eggs to anyone! Maybe we should have gone with the pancakes! With so many cafes in the immediately area I think I would try elsewhere next time out.
