The food was so nice, scrumptious. Staff ultra friendly and as we were having to discuss business were able to at a corner with a larger table .. Every one so friendly. A terrific assortment of foods.

Worst nachos I've had in a while.Just chilli flavoured mince over tortillas. No beans, no sauce. Fresh salsa on top was good.

The waitress that served us was most likely the rudest waitress that has served me in my life. The pizzas were so expensive for what they were, hardly any toppings or flavour. Food and coffees (which were burnt) took so long to come out considering the amount of people that were there. Definitely won't be returning.

Visited twice during stay. Order a burger on one visit. Not impressed at all. For the price I'd expect something better. Greasy and not of hospitality standard

We decided on lunch at Mint today as we haven't been for a while. There's always a good selection of options on the menu and I was impressed they offered an add-on to the listed menu when I was discussing what I'd prefer. Nice attention to detail. Our coffees were excellent and the food was tasty and plentiful. Only quibble... More

With the small outdoor playground, this is a favourite cafe (on a fine day) when going out for a coffee with the tribe in tow. The only downside is the giant tv screens which distract them from their milkshakes when they're inside. I can't say my husband and I enjoyed coming for dessert one night, though, as the environment was... More

On Saturday we had my neice birthday brunch here. The food was delicious, with our requests for things that weren't part of the standard menu being met without hesitation. The food was delivered promptly and our group made to feel welcome from the minute we went through the door. A wonderful environment and a place that I would definitly return... More
