Every time I try to go here they are closed or closing early. Their web site says open Sunday's but for months after constant calls and finally wasting your petrol, no they are not. So what's the food like, wouldn't have a clue.

This is one of my faves in Darwin. There are not that many good eateries in this town. This place delivers everytime. Good solid food and service. Back over and over because it is consistently good.

It doesn't look much from the outside but inside was groovy and we had our best breakfast in Darwin here. Great fresh juices, nice coffee and excellent hot breakfasts.

We did breakfast with friends here about a week ago and really enjoyed it. I had the Eggs from Hell and the chorizo combination was awesome. My brothers... More
