We had the chicken mayo bagel at a reasonable price, friendly service and great atmosphere. Ample parking. The service was fast and orders placed was correct,

Second visit. Second time they got our order wrong. Plant based for health, going on 8 years. Hereditary atherosclerosis. Ordered avo on toast, mushrooms and spicy beans. A simple plant based breakfast and impossible to get wrong... Guess again. Came topped with cream cheese and...sneaked in cooked pig sausages with the beans. Why a restaurant would do things like this is completely beyond understanding. Waiter was informed vegan. First visit a vegan salad came smothered in feta. Not the waiters/kitchen staffs fault. Cannot trust the staff to serve what is ordered because there is unnecessary additional items added in everything. 2 years and still doing the same stupid things. Unfortunately these are managerial failures (which points to bigger issues) and unfortunate having to leave a negative rating.More

Had a quick lunch there with wife, service was superb but not overwhelming we both had the gobstopper burger. It is probably the best burger 🍔 I have had in a restaurant ever. Highly recommended.

Very nice coffee shop./restaurant. The service was excellent. Our breakfast came in under 5 minutes! The eggs and bacon were perfectly cooked - they even asked how we'd like the bacon cooked. Very good cappuccinos as well.

Absolutely incredible service in both regards to timing and care. Food reasonably priced, beautifully presented, as described on menu and deliciously combined. Coffee of world class standard. Even the lemon water was extraordinarily refreshing. A six star rating is deserved.

I heard about this cafe from a friend, and it is so good we have been twice this week! It is hidden away, but the food is excellent (and unusual) and the service great. It is unlicenced, but you are welcome to take your own...- and there is no corkage. I had a Naked Burger - a lamb burger with avo and rosti potato instead of a bun. This also comes with curry beans and a salad, or sweet potato fries. My wife had Ed's Salad a very filling dish with chicken, avo, bacon tomato etc, and our friend had an open sandwich of brie, bacon and onion chutney on sourdough. First classMore
