We took our family here for breakfast after discovering it earlier on our morning walk. The place was crowded but the lovely waiter advised us he would put us on a wait list and would keep us posted as to our progress. Which he did! He regularly popped back to let us know how much longer he thought it would be and to offer us menus so we could start making our choices.

The wait ended up being relatively short (given there are 5 of us were used to having to wait).

Once we'd ordered the coffees and food came in reasonable time and we couldn't fault it. We ate eggs Benedictine, porridge, smashed Avi and the acai bowl. All of it was great! My porridge was soft and smooth and delicious. The coffee was great.

We loved the friendly vibe of the place. The owner was delightful as we're all the staff.

We'll be back!

We went there by fluke as it was off the main road and turned out this was one of the best cafes I have been to for coffee and cake. The owner was very friendly and the coffee was delicious. Cakes to match. Highly recommend this place for some food as well as the options looked delicious.

We had breakfast over the long weekend. The coffee was good and staff were friendly and communicated wait times did coffee. (Which was less than they said) as it was a long weekend we weren't in a rush! The cafe was busy but not bursting. Our meal took about 40m after ordering to come which is just on the edge of ok (allowing that it was busy). Most of the food was nice just not fabulous. The other cafe we went to with similar prices much tastier hence the 4/5.

Absolutely disgusted ! Ordered large latte and got three quarters of a cup, when I went to complain they said the cup was too big ! What a joke. Then ordered egg and bacon Turkish roll and couldn't find the egg and bacon . If I wanted to eat just bread I would of ordered just bread . You get no bang for your buck! Will not be back !
