We wanted to get breakfast before our ferry at 9am, they are one of early ones at start serving at 7am. I had the poached eggs on coriander avioli. The bread was soooo good (and I am not a bread eater). They baked all their bread and pastries in-house, you can see them making it. Coffee was good. Staff were... More

So, come and have a really good breakfast or eat a yummy pizza at night! People there are very friendly, and the coffee is amazing. The only "but" is that it takes a little to long for the food to get ready. And the wine comes in room temperature, as most of the restaurants here! So just ask for a... More

This restaurant offers an inviting setting - under umbrellas in the hustle and bustle of the Waterfront. We were there for Sunday morning breakfast. We waited FOR EVER to order coffee and food. When the coffee finally arrived it was hardly warm and then we had to wait even longer for the food to arrive. The scrambled egg was a... More

This cafe is unpretentious and reasonably priced, with excellent food in an area full of expensive tourist traps and banal fast food. The salads are great - and try the lemon cheesecake!

Although the menu is lacking a few breakfast options I would typically order; it makes up with lots of baked options . I especially liked my muesli with a blueberry muffin. Huge portion , no way did I need the eggs and meat I'm usually ordering. Felt like I area healthy breakfast for me. Great view and coffee was excellent... More

In the middle of the Waterfront attractions, a nice stop for a light meal or good coffee. Not to be missed.

Me and my brother in law went here for a healthy quick dinner after shopping and it was very good. We both had a salad and I ordered mine with the gluten free bread which was really very good. Beets, goat cheese and greens with buckwheat bread, bring it on! This place is great for coffee and brunch too!!

Location is nice in the middle of V&A Waterfront, relaxed and down-to-earth place with seating outside. Service ok, a bit busy to be friendly. Food is pretty much average, not outstanding, but ok for a quick lunch. Value-for-money very fair.

We dropped in to get some muffins for takeaway. Carrot ones were absolutely amazing! I would love to go back!
