We went there after going to the "Perc Café" when we had waited during 45min for your meal and we had not gotten it... This place is well known for their pancakes so I took a sweet hold with pear and mapple syrup and my partner took one with bananas and bacon. The service is really fast and nice. The... More

I'm not sure why the reviews say this is a great cafe, as it is average, went for brunch had pancakes which were ok, coffee was good cake was poor. Was very busy and staff seemed blasé about what they do. Also If you have a kitchen that is visible to customers make sure it is clean as this one... More

Quite a popular spot so have only been a couple of times as it looks packed. Pancakes are par for the course whenever we visit and they are good. Very big and their are a few different options to suit everyones palettes.

We took our university daughter here for breakfast. Was able to book a table day before. We sat at our table and decided on what to have. After watching other people gathered we had to go to counter to order - we weren't told this. Food was delicious and quick to come out. They do as others state great pancakes.... More

Nice cafe for brunch or lunch. It can become very busy especially in the weekend so it is best to book in if there is a group. Well known for their pancakes however my favourite has to be their homemade beans!

We found the service to be prompt which was great considering how busy they are. They greet every customer the whole time we were there. As soon as customers left they would get straight onto clearing and wiping down the tables which was also great to see!! We had some pancake vouchers from the motel which we used with no... More
