Had breakfast here twice when staying at the Waterfront - tasty americanos, great avocado toast breakfast with outstanding house spicy sauce (delicious on eggs). Recommended for a breakfast or lunch when in the area.

Service is super slow, food not great, coffee average.... you can do much better... the decor and ambiance is really good though

The restaurant is situated at the entrance of the waterfront and undercover, paid parking is available in the Battery Park parking garage in Dock Road. It is spacious with seating available inside and outside. I visited twice recently and really enjoyed the coffee, the apple/pineapple...and ginger juice, as well as their muesli, yoghurt and fruit. There is also a delicious range of pastries and cakes. Staff were friendly and the service was efficient. The second visit was early on a Sunday morning. We decided to visit again as the website stated it opened at 07h00. However, although they were open, when we arrived at 07h30 the barristers were reluctant to assist us, saying that they only start making coffee at 08h00. I would suggest the website details be changed if this is indeed the case, or that the staff be better trained. The manager was however fantastic and arranged excellent coffee for us which we enjoyed in the restaurant (and ordered take-away coffees too). Definitely worth a visit.More
