    Lost its way. Last 2 visits had poor food - frugal serve of salmon & poached eggs, soft mash rosti. Indifferent service, badly chipped cups & plates; toilets out of action. Avoid, better places 2 go.

    The nice barista with the glasses and long hair invented an amazing apple&pineapple juice frappe for me, then came over when I was halfway through and topped it up. LOVE IT HERE!

    Giant sandwiches ftw but don't expect anything except perfunctory service at best and massive delays at the worst. Still food and coffee are good

    You literally cannot go wrong with the breakfast prosciutto panini here. The baristas here also ground quality roast and the fresh juices are a treat too!

    I thought service was ok. Sunday morning breaky, greeted on arrival, received tea in 2 minutes, vegie breaky in reasonable time. Casual relaxed and well presented space. Worth a visit.

    The sausage, egg and tomato chutney breakfast roll was tasty, if perhaps on the large size. The chutney was more like a tomato paste.
