Good Coffee and service but difficult to find, really lacked atmosphere, food was fine but nothing to rant about.

My only regret is it took me 3 coffees to find Black Coffee Lyrics. After that it was the only place. The staff are friendly, decor very cool, the coffee is brilliant. It's a bit difficult to find and when they say they open for breakfast at 8am thats more of a guidline, which is a shame.

Dined here with a Groupon voucher and didn't realise the place had changed hands since we last dined, If we had known we wouldnt have gone, place was empty for a good 20-30 minutes compared to last time when it full, so lack of atmosphere to start with. The food, well I'm sure if the "chef" cooked it /made it... More

We used our groupon coupon to get a sharing banquet for 2. This little restaurant is tucked away out of sight and full of old books, memorabilia and a wall full of interesting graffiti. Definitely worth a visit just for the ambience. Service - Incredible! Corey was our attentive waiter and was friendly, helpful and happy to recommend the best... More

Awesome food. Award winning Steak. The steak is so tender. Ordered the pizza too. Special home made sauce. Coffee and BBQ with truffle. End with a dessert. Popcorn ice cream. This is the only Ice Cream I don't want to share with ANYBODY. Yummy!

Tables are dirty and sticky. Waitress offered a Shiraz as a white wine. Bread came with a supposedly apricot chutney dip but tasted more like a sweet Chili jam. Disgusting. 2 scallops came on a puffed pastryI I soggy barely cooked just looked terrible. And the best for the end; pork belly. If you don't know how to microwave it... More
