Had breakfast here one morning. My breakfast order was quite simple, 4 poached eggs, they were good without being spectacular, but the coffee was excellent. From the sign I believe it was Ethiopian Sidamo, but I understand it changes quite regularly. After 3 double espressos I was bouncing off the walls and ready for another day :)

Friendly service, a variety of tasty food, and super coffee. That's a great combination! You can sit inside, which is classy-comfortable, or outside on the footpath. My wife said her cappacino was the best she had in NZ and Australia. She drinks a lot of cappacino, so that says something. They have many quality gluten, dairy, etc., free items to... More

Great coffee. Great value for money. Good food. An unassuming place but Dimond in every way. We come here every time we are down south. Non pretentious but high quality food.
