Very friendly service and short wait time on food. Good coffee too. Decent menu selection. My particular dish was a little average, but it's the only one I've tried here. Would be happy to visit again though and try some other menu items.

Stopped here on an early trip to Brighton on Labour day, lots of parking available and I loved the seating and design of the cafe. Staff were very efficient and friendly. Long black was good, not the greatest in Melbourne but at the top end....More

My friends coffee was burnt and had to be remade. My almond late was split (bottom half water top half foam) and tasteless. Staff were presumptuous and there was a dog poo smell out the front seating area. Sorry guys, not Brighton standard!
