I read the review about there not being any vegan options. I have been here many times and the soup is usually vegan. They have always catered to my needs and there is always 1 or 2 vegan options available as baguettes and sandwiches. Strange

Ripe probably falls into the "shabby sheik" category. I found it a bit too shabby for mine. Upon entering there is a sign asking you to wait to be seated. They should have a magazine rack there because whilst only a few feet from serving...More

We avoided the $10 per head cover charge at Marples and had coffee and cake here. Lots of options - cheesecakes, muffins, biscuits and other assorted bakery items. Quite warm inside but there is seating outside and on the deck out the back.

We stopped by as the neighbouring Ms Marples was overrun. We did not regret it for a minute. The breakfast, bakes and coffee were outstanding in terms of quality and the manner on which the ingredients were put together. Absolutely a must to stop by...More

Pulled in for lunch. The breakfast menu stops at 11:45am, and having grown used to "all day breakfast menus", we were actually hoping for a very late breakfast. Instead we ordered simple sandwiches on toasted sourdough - nothing too exotic. But they were delicious and...More
