When I feel like spoiling myself with a great breakfast, this little venue is my preference. At lunch time on certain days, you are spoilt with some great local musical talent. The menu, be it breakfast or lunch, offer some great unusual options. I love the breakfast Oats with home cooked fruit, cream & optional whiskey

For the first time, I was disappointed with the new addition to the Open Sandwich menu - the Lamb & Beef Keftedes (Meat balls), served on bed of sliced lettuce and chopped tomatoes. The raw red onions cut too large, same as the chopped tomatoes.The meatballs are too heavy with a strong lamb taste - with no flavour - leaves... More

Really great breakfasts that have never disappointed. Definitely go here if you like eggs for breakfast. The coffee is quite average but the other beverage offerings makes up for the average coffee.

Went for an awesome Sunday breakfast. Unique café with different menu choices on interior blackboard. Was busy and meal was great - definitely recommend. Fresh bread brought in from Glenwood Bakery next door. Good service.

Quaint setup on the pavement that serves fantastic food. Brilliant service, delicious coffee. The breads are bought from the bakery next door - also a must visit. I loved the entire experience. I saw many locals having the oats so I thinks its a safe bet as well. Really lovely little spot, will see me again.

Whether I'm on my own, with friends or my teenage kids, I always enjoy this cafe type restaurant! The 'Not so Benedict' is a must! The sidewalk jazz duo are an added attraction on the weekend while you sip on a crocheted clad latte be it breakfast, brunch or lunch!

Unlike one of the other reviewers, we did enjoy the coffee. Indeed, that was the best part of the experience. The menu, though limited, is varied, but probably not to everyone’s taste—in fact, not to mine, particularly. But that’s personal, really. Service was good: polite and quick. Perhaps it is just me, but personally I found the live music (keyboard... More

Service was brilliant the food although a bit chick for my liking, but very good well presented and tasty. My only down side is they serve the lattes in a cool drink glass??
