“Great Little Suburban Cafe”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Chilled locals cafe, unpretentious good value, modern healthy fare, quality coffee and relaxed atmosphere. Nice personal touch to the service and meals and a nice stock of premium micro-brew type beers.

“Whimsical, almost-hidden gem”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

A nice little cafe conveniently situated for a quick lunch or afternoon coffee stint. Excellent coffee and bread sticks (the sticks of love are a must).

“coffee”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Just popped in for coffee - a bit disappointed that the spilt coffee cup was wiped with the oldest dirty cloth lying next to the coffee machine..... not too hygenic

“Averages Joe's”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Been to this quaint coffee shop twice. On the first visit had the "dippy eggs" (great), second time the omelette (disappointing & cold). Cappuchino was great, decor ok, no vibe, patrons stuck into newspapers, tablets, macs, etc. Service levels leaves room for improvement. Still haven't met the owner/manager(ess). Not a destination point but do bump in if you in the area.

“Yawn”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Not having been here for a while after an awful experience, visited with a friend. Surely not too much can go wrong with coffee and breakfast. Well.....coffee not as good as it used to be, service spotty and laden with excuses and the Welsh Rarebit was horrendous. Pity I did not take a picture and post it here. But beware.

Add flies all over the bread at the counter and a bottleneck over paying makes me wonder about the hype surrounding this very mediocre place...
