I bought two chocolate croissants as take away. Warmed them later in the day but they are so crunchy and tasteless ..... I believe they are stale and fit for a bin. It may be a once off blunder but eish it will be a...while before I trust you with my R45.More

Great portions, freshly made. I ordered the bacon and mushroom quiche which was super delicious with wedges and fresh salad on the side. To drink we had Cappuccinos. Prices were appropriate for portions provided.

We went for brunch, ordered toasted tramazinis. Very dry, and no flavour. However, the coffee was good. The waitron did bring us extra mayonnaise to try make the food palatable.

The bakery was very busy on the day and this should not be an excuse for terrible service and food arriving cold at your table. I had to send mine back. They did not even bother to to serve a fresh dish but tried to...heat the food which I believe spoilt it even more. My wife's omelette was dense and dry and would not recommend anyone to try this for breakfast. The table was shocking and near impossible to get the attention of your waiter. Mug n Bean next door was closed for a reno so we will visit them in the future once open.More

If you've never tasted their cream cakes spoil yourself and indulge in feasting on one. I've ordered the "happy vanilla cream cake" for my birthday and the family experienced one of their best cake eats ever. Be aware you have to order in advance otherwise...you'll leave empty handed.More

We went for lunch. Waited well over ten minutes for our drinks. After twenty minutes we asked where our food was. Told it was because the kitchen was busy. The restaurant was only half full and a lot were paying. My toasted sandwich came and...the wrong order for my husband. My toasted sandwich was only warm. If it has been hot it would have been good. The three chips were only warm to. I had finished my food before my husbands came. I had to go leaving him on his own. On the way out the waitress saw me and said I have this ice cream for you. It was only. Two mouth full. I left and told the bosses on the way out about the disaster of our meal. I was told it was a new menu. Nothing was taken off the bill as a way of apology. They did say sorry.More

Interestingly right next to Mug n Bean, yet the service and the breakfasts are superior. Magnificent bakery but pricey. Specials are available example some breakfasts include coffee. Mezze is a waste of time with a teaspoon of humus and 6 slices of bread, but good...sandwiches and brunch options.More

We were horrified when my husband found a huge piece of plastic in his breakfast. After stressing that he would l8ke his eggs very soft, he received eggs that could bounce off a wall. Very sad to see a wonderful place go down so drastically.

Business lunch here was good the services sparkling and the food good. Perhaps the only downside it was noisy.
