We went for lunch and enjoyed it very much. There were a mix of adults and children and everyone found something delicious on the menu. Ample parking was available just across the road making it easy for our less mobile family member. My son had the Nutella thick shake and claimed it to be the best thick shake he ever... More

Easy to park, great variety in menu, gorgeous view, friendly staff, but the most delicious breakfast in the eastern suburbs for sure! Not cheap but certainly worth the money. The seared scallops with smashed avo is a stand out and the muesli is scrumptious. Coffee is great too! It was quite busy on Saturday morning so a bit of a... More

Great ambiance, lovely food and coffee although a little heavy handed on the chocolate sprinkle on the coffee. Staff were very friendly.

The food and the location is wonderful. The service is a little bit and miss sometimes. On special occasions you will have to be prepared to stand and wait for a table as there are no reservations. Good coffee and the big breakfast is excellent. Top spot for breakfast.
