A group of us descended on the cafe for late breakfast. As the last ones to order, we had quite the wait. However we enjoyed our flat whites and our eggs Benedict.

We love going to focal point! So comfortable with couches to watch the movie! You can order food off the menus and they bring it into the theater for you. Very family friendly!

So a popular place to go for coffee or Tea and snacks. So we were working and wanting a nice place for an escape to somewhere other than the workplace. There's seats in front or back for when the front of the Cinema is busy.
