My 85 year old mother-in-law recommended this place as she had been there on numerous occasions. The food was pleasant enough but we were horrified when the unfriendly ladies at the counter refused to let my elderly relative use the bathroom - apparently this was now 'only for staff use'. They directed us to a public toilet 200 meters away.... More

We were short of time but needed some food to sustain us on our way home so we popped in. The woman behind the counter was friendly but the girls clearing the tables wished they were somewhere else, in fact it was hard to find a table that wasn't cluttered with mess from previous clients. The food which had look... More

Stopped here for lunch. Prices for food are reasonable you can get wraps and sandwiches for about $6.50. Good selection. Had usual cafe food and lots of health foods like acai bowls. Free WiFi No toilets there but you can walk to the library further down the street which takes about 5 mins and there are public toilets there.

We passed through Warkworth and stopped off here and ended up going back 3 times as we liked it so much. Great smoked salmon bagel, coffees, muffins and lovely cakes.

A quiet Sunday morning coffee and the most fruity muffin ever - better than I make at home - delicious! This is our first time visiting and on this occasion it was a 10/10.

Tried on and off over course of two years. progressively worse. Started slow and shabby but decent food. Then bored, painfully slow and unwelcoming service. Food declined further. Stodgy but dry cakes and consistently odd taste to rubbery dishes. Last time, staff too disinterested to even notice theyd forgotten my order and then got weirdly snarky about it. Smart move......

We called in for some lunch- Unfortunately we both needed to go to the toilet- There are NONE!- there's a sign telling us the nearest are public ones 200m away- REDICULOUS- the public toilets are pretty average in Warkworth and a long way away. The food looked interesting though. However - Instead of walking to the public toilets we walked... More

We ordered the bacon & egg breakfast with toast $12.50 and Maha big breakfast $21 sausage, bacon mushroom, tomato,egg and toast. Food was good with quick service. Seating inside approximately 6 tables and two outside tables with street view. Across the street is child playground and river walk path with public toilets.

A lovely range of cakes, relatively nice food, but counter staff very lack-lustre with no personality and seemed almost disgruntled to have to serve customers.
