We regularly get our coffees here and the owner always chats away to us which is great. The slices and brownie are delicious and I have enjoyed brunch there. My only gripe would be that it's sometimes hard to get a seat and the outside tables can be a bit temperamental!

A great Coffee place with tempting cabinet offerings such as pies, and baking all made on the premises. There is also a good Brunch menu to choose from. .

quite a nice place, odd location with very little place to park. More a place for locals who can clearly walk. The coffee was nice, but arent they all these days.. The shop was nice, but was just cold, ie could have thought about a heater. I would go back, but not a special place and I would not really... More

Tasty pies and salad! Also very nice range of treats - friands and other yummy sweets. A tiny area to sit in. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Reasonable prices too! Coffee was fine. Would go again.

This is a very popular eating place for those in the know. They have an excellent range of cabinet food - especially the pies - and the coffee is great. They also have a range of deli foods, both in the cabinet and dry goods, for sale.

I have been here before and loved it. Today though i left feeling as if i had been ripped off. My friend and i were there for coffee - their regular size was what i would call small in a normal world, i had to pay $1 more for my mocha, the marshmallow was teeny tiny and neither coffee was... More

I am really surprised by some of the bad reviews here - Seems some are expecting a 5 star restaurant and have very high expectations. I am a local and love this place. They are quick with the coffee and the food is good. For a suburban cafe, its great. The place is small but there always seems to be... More

I admit that I had quite high expectations as the place looks really nice from outside. I had a salmon broccoli quiche. The salmon was dry and overall a bit bland. Salad was an extra $3. I think it could have been much better with a little rice or bean salad to complement the salmon. Needed something to add a... More
