Used to love this place but wouldn't go again. Slightly grubby and tired interior, with a food stained paper napkin propping up our table. Undercooked muffin was $6 and $19 lamb salad consisted of a lot of salad leaves, 3 asparagus spears, yoghurt dressing and...More

$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

Coffee was good but food was nothing someone could cook at home, and expensive. Service was pretty poor as well.

I've never been impressed with the food or service here. Thought I would give it another go today. Unfortunately, it seems not much has changed. Looking at other comments on here I'm not the only one who thinks the service is bad. It's a shame,...More
