I quite liked the pumpkin/chicken salad I had, however it wasn't as flavoursome as I had hoped. I would still recommend as the staff were quite prompt and considerate of their customers.

We went here for dinner on the last night (wish we found it earlier) and the food great. Had a couple of tapas dishes for entree to share - aracini balls yum yum yum and the sweet potato chippies. Mains were great I had salmon salad (salmon bit overcooked but ok) and hubby had the ribs which he said were... More

Went to lunch here, the server was very friendly and helpful I ordered the Smoked Salmon Wrap, when it arrived it was large and full of Salmon and Salad very tasty, the Cafe is Licensed and you can sit and watch the passing parade.

Good basic restaurant. Nothing to rave about. Young busker outside restaurant was the highlight of the night. Squid fettuccine pasta very oily and mushroom risotto gave my girlfriend a gut ache. Good service. Better places to eat.

Catered for all ages with prompt service and delicious meals, both for kids and adults. Special mention to the sweet potato fries that were 'best on ground'!

7am on a Wednesday morning, waiting for Mokha to open when three staff members are out the front smoking. One girl throws her cigarette butt into the drain and walks away! I can't believe it :-(

We ate dinner in the laneway while a busker from Melbourne, arranged by the restaurant apparently, played for the guests. They are strong supporters of live music. The food was excellent and we did a tapas style selection including a paella for one that would have been good for two people, and it was!! Wine was an OK selection but... More

The most common breakfast item, eggs benedict, was not available nor were the pancakes but instead of telling us this before seating us, we were told when ordering. Very disappointing as we had chosen this cafe for these items only.

Our food was absolutely delicious and came out in a timely manner. Our waitress was so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much. The sweet potato wedges were sublime.
