Beware of choosing this restaurant. They are extremely unprofessional! Servers refuse to even acknowledge their customers despite staring at them for several minutes. If you order for pick up, the food is left sitting on the counter with servers going about their way while you're...standing their waiting to be attended to. At 9 something pm on Tuesday, 30th of June, I witnessed a delivery driver working for a courier company just stand there with the food sitting on the counter, right by the servers, but the servers refused to even attend the driver for probably 10 minutes! The servers were a woman with a terrible attitude and a young looking guy just busy with his work. The woman definitely saw the driver several times but ignored the driver and let the food sit on the counter to get cold. Then a man comes from behind the kitchen (likely the manager) and has the audacity to tell the driver to "make noise". I saw all of this and had to leave the restaurant and didn't even want to eat their food as I doubt it's even safe to eat food with such an immorally and unethically run place. If they let delivery food sit on the counter and get cold because their servers are a bunch of unprofessional degenerates with attitude (the lady that was working that night), I can only imagine what they do with your food behind the scenes in the kitchen! You have been warned! Eat here at your own health's expense and be ready to be treated piss-poorly. A joke of a restaurant. Glad I decided against eating there.More

The food was nice. All day breakfast is a nice idea. The eggs beni was lovely. The waitress was attentive and came around regularly with coffee. We had a large group so the food came in a timely manner you would expect for such a...big group. This is the 3rd time in 12 months eating here and each time has been good. All in all a return is on the cards.More

Been here a few times ... although I enjoy their 3 egg breakfast and $5 mimosas I always find the service slow and food takes awhile even when not busy . ( they have daily specials ) the mimosas are their staple for Sunday’s. I...think I will try one more time ..More

Comfortable and friendly, this cafe chain offers an impressive selection of specialty coffees, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, as well as a decent offering of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. Lush couches in booths and good acoustic design provide for a quiet, relaxing experience. A patio...facing the street is also available. Service is quick, and prices are reasonable. Plenty of plaza parking, wheelchair accessible.More

A party of five had dinner at Symposium the other night. Friendly waiter but it appears he got busy and it took along time to get coffees and final check. Four of us had the specials for two that included appetisers, main course and dessert...to share. Everything was very good. We ordered speciality coffees to come with the great desserts, but we had finished the dessert and the coffees arrived not hot.More
