I recently had breakfast here with some friends and enjoyed the casual and friendly service from the staff, the range of items on the menu and the relaxed atmosphere of this quaint café. The breakfast was delicious, a good size and served promptly. Overall a lovely experience at a very reasonable price

Merlo coffee and drive-thru ... excellent combination for all those parents with small kids. Two locations - sanity saver!

Reasonable prices & friendly service. Our delicious meals were quick to the table despite the cafe being full. Fantastic range of gluten free options available. Staff are enthusiastic and accommodating to dietary needs. Tables are cleared in a timely manner. Specialty bean coffee was delicious! Thank you!!!

So admittedly we came to have some lunch at the end of the allotted lunch service time frame but, a customer is a customer and if I have an experience that is less than comfortable or welcoming then guess what...

First time at Pump. Nice environment (particularly for the ladies). Long wait at the register to order when the restaurant wasn't busy - just seemed to take a while for people to order / pay.

Stumbled on this coffee shop, and now it is our number 1 go to place. Sure there are negatives, parking - it is cramped and not that safe as you try to reverse with cars behind you trying to get to the drive through. Best option is park opposite out side St James church and walk across the road. Not... More
