“Lovely breakfast”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

We had Sunday breakfast in this busy café, great atmosphere, staff very welcoming. Both had poached eggs on toast with sides plus coffee, the food arrived quickly and was very tasty, eggs cooked perfectly. Coffee was hot and great. The only negative I had was there was no muesli/granola/fresh fruit/yoghurt option on the menu. It's all egg variations plus a waffle desserty dish, whereas I usually prefer a muesli/natural yoghurt option with fruit toast. Best café in Devonport however :).

“Nice atmosphere, good service, something different in Devonport.”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

This place is pretty funky, especially by Devonport standards. We had the vegetarian breakfast, which wasn't cheap ($18) but was big and tasty.

The decor gives the place a nice feel, it always seems busy, and the food arrived in a timely fashion, served by friendly and attentive waitresses.

“Atmosphere Plus”

This was a great find in Devonport.
Quirky little cafe with loads of atmosphere, good coffee, and the " Eggs Bennie " fantastic. Great place to meet up with friends.
Definite return.
