This is a perfect place to stop off for lunch or just a coffee as you meander along Long Street and please do make the trek to the end to get to it and don't succumb to the many mediocre places along the way.
Here you get a wonderful selection of fresh food at fair prices, funky music, and a great place to hang out.
The chef's special of salade niçoise is really great with the tuna done to perfection !
The coffee is decent but could carry a little more punch.
I loved the little touch of filling the ashtrays with a drop of water to catch the ash in the ever present wind of the Mother City !

The waitress seemed as if she was doing us a favour by serving us. Overall bad waitress means never returning.

Our lunch was spoilt by an extremely sullen, unfriendly waitress. She argued with us when we asked for the music to be turned down a bit as we couldn't hear each other speaking, and ended up literally throwing the bill on the table. Pity as the food was tasty .

Popped in for an early cappuccino with friends on Sunday morning. Enjoyed the vibe, our waitress was pretty cool, and the coffee was great. My favourite was people watching through the window.. Great location

I rarely review on restaurants but this place is worth my time. It was open on a Sunday and my husband & I annihilated the fresh mussels within 3 minutes. The sauce was so good that we had to ask for bread so we can soak in its goodness.
I would come back again.
