Terrible service, had to wait ridiculously long for our meal (it was not busy) and then order was mixed up with no apology. Meal was disappointing and not of a standard one would expect for the price. Got smashed peas which were served chilled with...warm toast and the smallest poached egg one can imagine, it was just weird. Would not go back. This place used to be good but would no longer recommend.More

Awesome breakfast. Well presented and plenty of it. Definitely a very different experience than some of the recently posted negative reviews. I’d come again… and I’m picky. Coffee was also good 😁

Would not recommend this place to be honest and I'm not a fussy person or a Karen. I had the Eggs Benedict with bacon. I got a decent amount of bacon which was great...if it t had actually been cooked. The whole lot was raw...and had literally couldn't eat any of it. The bacon was practically see through and was very chewy. Meanwhile the piece of sourdough I got was the size of my palm quite literally and there was only one piece. If the piece had been somewhat of a decent size that would have been fine. The only decent part was the two hash browns....but they were tiny as well. Underneath the two eggs there was quite literally 6 leaves of spinach......enough said. Will not be returning sorry and wouldn't recommend.More

Order the Bacon, Eggs, Toast and English Breakfast Tea. Sit back, read the Newspaper, put the paper down, enjoy the breakfast. No Disappointment at all. Just total enjoyment.

Celebrated our cousins 60th birthday here today. Had a fab meal, service was first class. Big thanks to our waitress Nikita who handled our orders with ease and a big smile. Definitely recommend this cafe for a family get together.

We went for Sunday lunch but it was so disappointing we wont be back. Service very slow and the staff were totally disinterested and unfriendly. Hubby ordered a cheese scone heated. Came out cold. He saw it sitting on the bench for 5 minutes before...it was even brought to our table.I ordered the squid salad off the board. 5 tiny bits of squid and a horrible dressing. I couldn't eat it. What a waste of $22! What's happened to this place??More

We stopped here at midday and my partner had the steak pie and I had my favourite breakfast, eggs bene. The food and the service were hot notch and we could not find fault with anything. The Holllandaise was smooth tasty as was the gravy...in the pie. We both enyojed our experience here and will not hesitate to recommend it to any and all friends and tourists. Thanks Alimento, you exceeded our expectations!!More

This place used to be consistently good but today’s food was mostly inedible and the drinks were too awful to finish. I had a steak and cheese pie but when it came out it had been nuked in the microwave so the pastry was soggy....Then the filing was very little steak but a lot of carrots, onions etc. I am not a child who needs to have their vegetables hidden. My partner had the Caesar salad and it came in a very high-sided bowl so it was difficult to see what their was and it had way too much dressing. I had a smoothie which was thin, not cold enough and tasted of peanut butter. He had a long black which he said was burned. All in all, it was terrible food and bad drinks so we won’t be back.More
