“Great selection of food and beverage”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This place is open from breakfast to the quite late, catering to the cinema patrons as well, and has consistently served up a diverse menu and drinks list, with some of the best coffee in the area. The staff here are great too.

“Very Ordinary Breakfast”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Went there for Breakfast and sat down at a table and asked for a Latte & Juice and ordered a Bacon Sandwich.

The photo is how the Bacon Sandwich arrived. I was shocked. The waiter knew I was eating in so i don't know why the chef thought it was takeaway or two why they at least he cut it in half at least.

The coffee was also very avreage.

Will not go there again in a hurry.

“Toasty fire place in neighborhood brunch place”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

In the prosperous neighborhood of Glen Waverley a good brunch place is a shoo in for a hit, especially if you have a wood burning fireplace for just that cold rainy fall day. Red banquets and white chairs add to the welcome on this rainy Sunday morning. WiFi available? Yes but they cut you off after 30 min. Good coffee? Check but ask twice for the milk. Fluffy pancakes? Check but they were stingy with the syrup. Healthy menu items? If you call French toast and pancakes " healthy habits". Mercifully ' Sicilian brekky" of toasted ciabatta witty roasted cherry tonsure, ricotta and basil was tolerable for those with arteries that needed repair. All told a good place to hang out with friends and family for brunch on a wintry Sunday morning.

“Looking for a late night snack? Shine will.”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Good buzz of a young late dining crowd. Prompt courteous service. Decent wine list. Wholesome "pub grub" - with a mediterranean flavour.
Fills that late night gap. Recommended.
