    big brekky is BIG, and beautiful; coffee isn't real strong, but goes down nicely (double shot it!)

    Went for dinner - nice food but v simple, eg. Chicken with no sides. Pastas were nice - fettuccine and risotto. Not what it used to be though and had run out of premium beers!

    If you're for brunch on the weekend, try the vege breakfast stack (before midday) or the BLAST (after midday).

    1st April 2012: Staff implies that its our fault that a table of 5 takes over 30 mins to get seated. Needless to say we left.

    Pretty mediocre service and food. Ordered poached eggs with avo and tomato. All items just plonked on the plate with no care, no love and no garnish. I'm trying to think of a saving grace but can't

    Place was once amazing. Changed owners. Last ate here 2012 & had a bad experience. Thought we'd give it another try today. No joy :( Bad food. Bad Service.
