Coffee pretty good but not strong enough for me. Service was great. Corn fritters ( $15) were bland bland bland...so called salsa that came with it was just a bruschetta with no oil or salt..so no sauce as such - and it needed a sauce or at least some seasoning. Bacon and Egg on Turkish was a bland bacon and egg roll for $13 that also had hardly any sauce so was very dry - for $13 ! waitress was lovely and the place was full on a Sunday lunch so I guess everyone else loves it...not us. Food took a long time to arrive too.

Having been back in town for a couple of years I have found this little jewel in the crown called Lotus at The Junction.

The staff have alway made me feel welcome and will bend over backwards to accommodate requests for meals as made.

The food has an amazing consistency that each time you have dish it's taste is tha sameas last time which is a credit to the kitchen staff.

The cost is not cheap but also not over the top and meal sizes reflect the value of the meal.

Coffee and cakes are fantastic and not to be ignored.

On the whole one (if not the best) value for money dining experience in town. You know you willget a fantasticmeal every time.

This is a fab place for those who need to eat gluten free, or those seeking great coffee. Have had coffee and GF cakes many times all been excellent. There is a separate menu for those needing to eat gluten free. The salt and pepper squid is the best I have ever had, and my partner loves the caesar salad. The service is friendly and relaxed yet professional. Good seating area outside when the weather permits as the windows open up for an alfresco experience that is shaded. We keep coming back for more.
