Their coffees are good. Food is average. Nice place to grab a drink and a quick bite from the cabinet if you're waiting around the airport.

“Friendly place with homemade goodies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Home-made pies freshly baked every day and a regularly changing menu. I tried the 'Warbirds burger' which was packed with beetroot, egg, bacon, onions, pineapple and came with homemade coleslaw. Delicious, so filling and great value for money. My partner had the ' thai green curry special'... again a large portion, homemade and served with jasmine rice and poppadoms. Coffee was brilliant, served very hot and steamed to perfection. Was also a large selection of home made cakes, muffins, scones and biscuits. All of this in a retro 50s diner with friendly, helpful, chatty staff. We'll be back!

“Not good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

This place looks so appealing from the outside, we went to the museum and came here for lunch. It has the potential to be good, when we came the only meals to choose from are on a small black board and they were wiping things off the menu as we were reading it. There were only about 5 things to choose for lunch which consisted of eggs two ways or 3 types of burgers. They had no children's menu or food suitable for young children. Our son ended up having a sausage roll that was full of carrot, which he hated. Our burgers took a long time to come out and were full of onion, and came with a small serving of coleslaw and fries and only ended up eating half of our meals. The museum is alright but don't eat here.
