Really slow service and average food. Popped in while waiting for daughter’s hockey game to start. Had 1 1/2 hrs up our sleeve. The cafe was busy but not packed. We were advised it would be 30-40 mins for food to arrive. After 45 minutes we asked how much longer, another 10 mins. Two out of 5 orders came out. The rest arrived after another 10 minutes. Daughter had the picnic plate- crackers were wet and the lolly cake. I ordered mushrooms on toast, no flavour and the bread was soggy with mushroom juice.
All in all not a great experience and unlikely to return. Did not seem short staffed, maybe behind the scenes they were.

A quirky and very well put together coffee. Good coffee.

It is in the front of the Richardson Transport museum and is the same high quality as the museum.

Plenty of room, not crowded, has some entertaining features associated with the museum.

The cabinet food looked good. You should try this cafe.

Fancy ordering an eggs bene and it comes with NO bread? Truely an odd experience. “Comes with hollandaise sauce” barely any sauce on the shrivelled up chook offspring I received.

Tips to help: perhaps offer bread as part of the eggs bene.
Cook the eggs and lather those chooks goodness in sauce.

Life is hard, but those potatoe cakes you offer are harder.
