    Coffee was great. Service took a while though but is worthwhile. Avocado toast was yummy. I added in the side a couole of poached eggs :)

    Baked eggs are a must. Quite busy at the weekend so enjoy a lovely flat white while waiting to be seated.

    The basil gnocchi was nice, quite rich and filling so make sure you are hungry before taking it on. The Passionfruit Fuzer (sic) drink is sickly sweet. Service and environment were good.

    Nice relaxed environment filled with trinkets. Although baked eggs are the trump dish, smoked salmon eggs also ain't bad, could do with more asparagus though.

    Amazing food, decent portions. Baked eggs and eggs Benedict particularly. Sadly the coffee isn't great.

    The salmon tartare is way too salty - and heavy on cream. Very nice cafe though.

    Nice place but service too long. Basic food. Eggs w/ prosciutto: ketchup on bread, no dressing for the salad and poached eggs not well poached. Toasted muesli: not toasted, just an industrial muesli.

    Kick start juice was good. The famous baked eggs is too overrated. Took more than 30mins to get my food out. Maybe back again to try other dishes when I'm in the area and have plenty of time.

    Cute cafe and friendly service but really average food and coffee. The hollandaise sauce looked and tasted like it came out of a jar. Too many other great breakkie choices in Sydney to come back here.

    Great service! If you order too much they'll happily put it in a takeaway container. Which is good because the meals are pretty big.

    The soy latte is good here. Not sure if they have wifi but it's generally so busy that it's not a place you can linger long anyway. I'll be back to try their food.

    Had one bite, paid $12 & walked out. Waiter confirmed baked eggs was supposed to be this tomato soup consistency. Don't know which cooking school he went to...gross.
