$3 extra for scrambled gigs is a but extreme, making a breakfast cost $24... also $5 for a small 330 ml coke. Food was good when it came but wouldn't return due to the prices and miserable staff

Last time we eat here. Staff are unfriendly, no greeting, no thank you. Ordered a toasted sandwich for $8. Assumed from the cabinet that it would be thick wholesome bread, instead received nasty cheap white bread with minimal fillings.
