We visited at 10:15 today, a Sunday. I'm sorry I cannot concur with the previous recent reviews. Service was prompt and not unfriendly, but nothing special. Coffee was good, but cost $4.30 - maybe this includes a Sunday surcharge? I ordered the pesto scrambled eggs...More

The other reviews that describe this place as 'underrated' and undiscovered are spot on. This was a cool little place and I'm glad we found it. Good food (and there's quite a selection), with good service; can't go wrong.

Really lovely food, coffee is great and the customer service was brilliant! Young lady serving us was very pleasant and couldn't do enough to make sure we had everything we needed. Portions are a good size, was a lovely morning.

Great coffee and meals. Souvlaki is great with the home made taziki sauce. Whilst their menu needs an update their daily specials always providescan interesting alternative. No fancy interior but food and staff make up for the decor.

Been here a few times and the food and service is consistently good. Huge servings and good ingredients are used. I usually get the big breakfast which comes with Halumi and a wedge of lemon. Courtyard is charming.
