last review was in 2013 , since then the owner, manager , decor and menu has changed, sometimes it does take a while but the wait time is alot better , the menu still good but with more healthy options. the loud music has been toned down.. yay much better atmosphere now.

A very tasty lunch, served quickly considering the café was chock full of customers (always proof of a good eatery). Staff were smiling and friendly at the same time as being super-busy,Coffee good and very reasonably priced - thank you... More

Wow!!, Had Bacon and Poached Eggs. What seemed to be a somewhat ordinary breakfast turned out to be a fan-tas-tic experience. The Bacon was crispy and I might add 3 Poached Eggs cooked to perfection.Wow!!! 😆 once again. The Service was exceptional. The Coffee with Almond Milk divine. I recommend this cafe to everyone and anyone. Thank you.

Stoped in for a light lunch yesterday after a recommend on Trip advisor; we were impressed. The place was very busy, customers eating in and those looking for a takeaway option. The food was well presented in chilled glass cabinets, nothing was hidden. The menu was a little hard to read being on a number of chalk boards all seemingly... More

Creamy mushrooms for me and a big breakfast for hubby. It was delicious. Iced coffee was a bit sweet but that's what you expect. Well priced for the money. Lovey cool cafe with outdoor space as well.

Tasty shrimp and smoked salmon carbonara, a little surprised to have to peel tails off the shrimps. Front was crowded but was directed out to the back. A reasonable seating area but noisy from adjacent deliveries and smoking is allowed there.

I'll keep this brief. Great welcoming service and delicious food. Not the cheapest in town but you pay for quality and that's what you get here. Yum.
