“Consistently brilliant”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

This cafe has become a regular with our family and friends - always guaranteed to have a delicious meal or in the case of a coffee - the best in the bay!! It doesn't seem to matter what you order it is all mouth-watering. Fresh,quality ingredients and usually with a bit of a twist - not your usual menu - my only criticism is trying to decide what to order as it is alway so good!! The eggs are so flavoursome and the beef roll with beetroot etc is divine. As for the pancakes - the lightest I have ever tasted! Another positive is the cost - not at all expensive however they maintain a very high standard with the quality of their meals. The friendly staff ensure that things keep ticking over in what is usually a busy cafe. Relaxed atmosphere with great food - could not ask for more! You can't make reservations but any wait is certainly more than worth it.

“Best Breakfast In Adelaide”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

The food here is amazing. Much more is on offer than your usual 'bacon & eggs'. I've been here on 2 occassions and had the French Toast and the Homemade Cinnamon Crumpets with Banana & Maple Syrup. My husband had the Grilled Haloumi & Chorizo with Sourdough when we visited together - it was spectacular! The coffee is also good and, despite some people saying otherwise, I have found the service to be really good. However, because it is so popular, arrive early to avoid disappointment! I have been at opening time both times and there have been people lining up and the place is full within 5 minutes! This has definitely become one of my favourite places to eat.

“Great food and service.”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Trip advised Glenelg for lunch for myself + 6&8 year old. First option was full. This is nothing to look at but the food and service were great. Big sensible menu. Big list of 'sandwiches' that you can have in wrap, roll or baguette for just $9. Fresh ingredients and tasty too. One child had bacon and eggs the other a stack of 2 pancakes. Both were well presented and very filling. To top it off the staff were really friendly and helpful. Thx for a great lunch in an unknown (to me) town. 100% better than the chains on the high st.
