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

    $20 minimum for card payment is a nuisance.

    Eggs with pesto & mushrooms and eggs Benedict are both awesome! Coffee is great too!

    Nice of them to put out newspapers in the morning.

    They also do late lunch :-)

    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.

    Nice place in Glebe. Delicious coffee & incredible brunch.

    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.

    Loved the pancake with berries and omelette with basil feta pine nuts mushrooms and pesto

    The fruit juices are fresh squeezed and delish ;)

    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.

    Baked eggs with chorizo. Do it!

    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.

    Felt a bit sick after the prosciutto eggs. Was very heavy. Coffee and service was nice enough though ...

    Off the beaten track cafe... Quiet/delicious and fair prices!!

    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.

    Isaac Dugdale · December 16, 2012
  • Katrina M.

    Poached eggs with mushroom & pesto & Parmesan on toast. So good.

    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.

    good coffee,good food.. well worth the price! ppl are lovely too.. but the only downside is the slow service so just avoid getting there on sat morning.

    it took forever for us to get our food, and the place was not even half filled!

    Great saturday morning hangout before the markets :)

    The Bircher muesli with yoghurt, honey, poached pear, and pistachios is an absolute treat!

    Trish Sunga · August 15, 2012
  • Reg L.

    Proscuitto and poached eggs w tomato cheese and tomato relish on sourdough toast is delish! Sadly the coffee didn't live up to the hype.

  • Sophia T.

    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.

    The usyd access discount is actually 10% off everything, not the 50c off coffees advertised on the usu website.

    If they don't have a breakfast combination you want but your friend gets one you can make your perfect meal out of the extras.

    Stephen Mok · September 26, 2011

    The smoked salmon & poached egg is too good. Try the roasted sausages too.

    Great place for all day breakfast before stopping by glebe markets on the weekend. The pear and kiwi fruit juice was a good refresher.

    The baked eggs are ok, the salads are pretty bad

    Mooksy ♔ · May 7, 2011

    Great coffee, when made by the main barista/owner. Oven cooked poached eggs are the best
