“Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Just ordered drinks - they were served to us at the table very promptly. The food in the display case looked great - but we had already eaten lunch. Lots of gluten free options

“Overpriced and disappointing”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We've been keen to try this place for a while but we wished we hadn't! We were there for lunch with our two kids. There was no highchair and we were made to feel that our kids weren't welcome. We asked for a small serve of pasta for our son and we were charged $16 for a basic penne with pesto that had been reheated to the point of being inedible. The Pre prepared meals looked great but were average at best and the extra $5 added on for the privilege of dining in was outrageous (lunch and water for 3 people cost us $60). The service wasn't great and the place seemed more geared towards the tour buses that line the street outside. All the food was reheated in the microwave and for what it was it was way overpriced. Leura has much better on offer for a lot less.

“Classic retro old style cafe”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Not a lot to be impressed by at first sight, but come inside and experience great friendly service. Only had a smoothie but it was fantastic. Felt like a kid again :)

“There are better places across the road”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This place seems to be run on the basis of 'What can we pre-prepare and display in the chilled cabinet ready to shove in the microwave when anybody wants it?'. I had a thing described as a Spanish Omelette and it was very poor. How can anybody make an omelette so watery? To make matters worse, it was expensive.

Definitely NOT recommended.
