I have found service and food lacking at times over here. I have been spoilt at home. This little cafe at the end of Albert St is excellent. Everything is made to order (not sure if they make their own quiche's or not) and is...More

We visited on the day we were moving house for some much needed refreshment. The breakfast rolls (ciabattas) are excellent value and delicious. Very substantial too. Small but brilliant cafe.

Went for breakfast on a Sunday because there was a queue. I got a stool on the window sill andmy coffee quite promptly. The eggs florentine arrived without a big wait, either, and were absolutely delicious, runny, well seasoned.

Popped down for breakfast, had to wait ten minutes on a table. Well worth the wait, great breakfast all served with a smile from some very friendly staff. Thanks

I think it was the most delicious Eggs royal I've ever eaten! Also the Scottish full breakfast was very good. A very good point is that you can eat this plates all day long and not only until 12 am like everywhere. 👏👏👏
