I booked a table for 11 people for a Mother's Day lunch but was not told that only a set menu was available. We arrived and waited for 30 minutes before getting up to ask for menus. They had run out and were printing more. When they finally arrived I realized everyone was required to pay $45.00 for a meal... More

It took 30 minutes for coffee to arrive then 10 minutes later our teas. Breakfast wasn't served until 1 hour 20minutes later after ordering. And one of our orders came out 10 minutes after the rest. Staff were nice but all in inconsistent uniforms which didn't look professional. I understand that it was busy but the business obviously over booked... More

Service - Served by Bonnie. Excellent service with such a lovely smile! What a lovely cafe to enjoy a sunny morning by the river! Food and coffee was excellent and well priced. Our bonus was watching the Pacific Dawn sail up the river on her next voyage! Will definitely visit again!

Tucked away in Hamilton just a little up from Eat Street is a quirky cafe with a relaxed atmosphere. This was our first time here and we love the place. The food was delicious and the service from Bonnie and a Julia was fantastic.

Looking for a place to have lunch that was on the river or at least had river views and was not overpriced. This place fit the bill nicely. I don't think there was a table in the restaurant that didn't have a view of the river. Staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. Bonus is that there's a City Cat that... More

This cafe is a gem, with a great location on the river in Hamilton. Lovely trip on the CityCat out here for coffee, brunch or lunch. However, due to its popularity I would highly recommend you make a reservation. We did not make a reservation, as we were just dropping in on our way past to get a snack-to-go and... More

This was a welcome sight out of the blue in an industrial area, and has a lovely aspect on the river. The pork belly was good but the special barramundi just wasn't very fresh. The salad nicoise was just average. Very relaxed surrounds were appreciated.
