A delightful café snuggling between Darwin’s Mitchell Street and The Esplanade. Caters for the wonderful fluoro lads, executive ladies and lads and the casual visiting yobo. The coffee is muy bonito! I come from Melbourne so that’s very high praise. The food is good too-...More

Quirky little cafe up an alley way off Mitchell Street serving healthy and tasty food. Busy at breakfast time. Good coffee and some gluten free options. Outside seating available. Recommend.

A great cafe for a coffee or a meal. Ideal on a hot day to chill and enjoy the decor inside if you like felines or the lush outdoor area. Delicious food & great coffee.

The food was good. Nothing fantastic or out of the ordinary, just eggs cooked week. The milkshakes were a hit with the kids. The Benny bagel and waffles were good. You order at the counter and they bring you your food so it’s not full...More
