The service was awful, our meals came out separately, the food itself was bland and looked like nobody in the kitchen gave a rats backside about their work or customers, the milk in the coffee was boiled, the place wasn’t even busy, so no excuse for rubbish service

Nice cafe setting outdoors. Excellent breakfast sausage pizza (best I've had) and perfectly cooked poached egg. Parking here is difficult and service could be a little more interested and friendly. Given the huge choice of cafes in the city, we likely wont rush back.

Totally recommend this place for breakfast. The salmon omelette is top notch, and the coffee was just as good. Friendly efficient staff as well. Will return next time we are in town.

Came by this cafe as it was near the motel we were staying in. We ordered hot drinks. Didn’t order anything from the cabinet.The selection of slices and sweet treats seem pretty average . They didn’t have anything for gluten free diets though.
