“Slow Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

Visited twice. Both times coffee was reasonably quick in 10 minutes but then another 30 to 40 minute wait for order to be taken and breakfast to arrive. Understaffed.............

“Breakfast Rip Off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Went for breakfast yesterday and what a rip off. Had the farmers breakfast which consisted of ONE mushroom and 2 very small chipolata sausages along with the 2 poached eggs on toast with a side of bacon. This is not acceptable as a full breakfast and at $19.50 a complete joke.

“Breakfast Let down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

The Farmers full breakfast is a rip off and far from a full breakfast at $19.50, I got 1 mushroom and 2 very small chipolata sausages along with my 2 poached eggs on toast with a side of bacon. It should be called poached eggs with bacon s the rest was a waste of time. I am a local and will be spreading the word to avoid the breakfast here.

“Hit and Miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

The French toast with avocado and bacon was very good but the bacon in the breakfast roll was much too fatty and not crisp.
