Unless you were looking for this place you would probably miss it. Positioned inside a health outlet, set back from the road, its virtues are not immediately apparent. Step inside however and you find yourself in a light spacious café complete with large indoor trees....More

This cafe is always worth a visit especially if you need a gluten free diet. The gluten free waffles are to die for and the Korean plum sauce they serve it with is amazing. The cabinet has lots of other gluten free choices as well....More

Good cafe. Visited on weekend as parking sometimes not great. Paid my $2 into the parking machine and it just sat looking at me with a message that if this machine is not working, try another one nearby. Get lost! I was prepared to do...More

Had the Eggs Bene with Kale on brioche. Nearly asked for it Kale to be removed as soggy kale wouldn’t be nice. It came out crisp and lovely and I now prefer it to spinach! Immediately knew I’d be back the next day. Cuppa tea...More

We went here for weekend brunch and the coffee was sublime. My meal of simple poached eggs and sourdough was fantastic, my partner ordered the waffles which had great flavour but a very strange and unpleasant texture. Overall we loved it and would be back.

Simply delicious food. From more traditional French toast to spicy pork Bao buns, this cafe ticks all the boxes. Light, airy, scandi design, super friendly staff and only 15 minutes from the CBD. Can’t go wrong.

A retired couple, have had lunch there a few times now. Items available good but a bit restrictive. Some unique ones which is good to see. Service good and friendly.
