Delicious. Just plain delicious. And reasonably priced. My family of 4 enjoyed breakfast here--omelete, crepes, baked goods--all of them were delicious. We had to buy a bagful of treats to take with us on our journey back to the States. Excellent!

Local hangout for the Glebe crowd which has great atmosphere, food and is not that expensive. Almost always half full to crowded, has a bakery, is licensed and has a relaxed coffee shop atmosphere. Always a great choice to drop in.
