I had an hour to get breakfast before some work. Capers was not full but it took 40 mins for my breakfast to arrive, and then when it did it ordinary.

We had breakfast - Omelet was good so was the pancakes. Clean and tidy and very good table service. Good location close to motels on the Northern end of George Street. Good standard fare.

We took our boys to this as the love pancakes. Coffee was great and food even better. We ended up sharing 2 full meals for the 4 of us and it was just the right amount.

Coffee was good. Sadly, I have to stop there. My daughter ordered eggs benedict with salmon and received something with cooked fish. I tasted it as well and it tasted nothing like salmon, even overly cooked. We couldn't get the waiter's attention so I took...More

Capers is predominantly a café, so they're better for brunch eggs, pancakes or coffee. However, they do a great smoked salmon and zucchini/pepper fritters dish with hollandaise - really delicious. If you want great seafood... More
