Blax Cafe has a very nice neighbourhood feel. Breakfasts are especially good. AND they now have a book exchange. You're able to take a book, whether you have one to exchange or not.

Came for a breakfast and was pleasantly surprised by the fast service and top quality food. The food looks and tastes fantastic, had a filling breakfast and renewed energy. Not far from anywhere and the Food is just divine. A great photo opportunity too!

I ordered Eggs and Bacon Benedict. The hollandaise wasn't special although there was a generous serving. The eggs were cooked pretty well.
Friendly staff however they neglected to wipe down our table from previous diners. Wouldn't go again on purpose but wouldn't refuse either.

A Grabone voucher brought us in here for a late breakfast / early brunch.
I had the crispy bacon / poached eggs / sausies / mushies / crispy hash browns / tomatoes with a side of baked beans (of course!) on toasted Burgen/Vogels.
My partner had the eggs benedict with bacon on ciabatta.
Both were perfectly presented, perfectly cooked, in good serving sizes.
She had a trim flat white, I had an Americano, with hot water and cold trim milk on the side. Both exactly right, both served hot and ready to slurp.
Service was helpful, respectful, and discreet.
Pleasant clean understated surroundings.
We could not have asked for more.

Had to find a quick breakfast place and this place was great! My partner said the coffee was strong and had some nice flavours to it. Our food was delicious! I can't rate the corn fritters any higher. Partners eggs benny had the best crispy bacon so far. Would recommend for something easy and delicious.
