a large group of us met for breakfast after a morning of bird watching. I think there were about 30 of us? the staff were very helpful in arranging enough tables for us all and getting our meals out promptly. The food was delicious and very filling.

I get coffee from here every sat & Sunday morning 9 times out of 10 it is excellent. But that 1 time out of ten it's absolute rubbish. The cashier tries to make coffee and it is terrible, burnt & watery! No taste no flavour! Just because you think you can make coffee doesn't mean you can.

Good food and Coffee. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Always busy so a good sign but sometimes a delay with the ordering process when they are flat out.

Very friendly staff and a great range of fresh food, we had a Bacon and Egg wrap toasted which was very tasty. Coffees also were lovely and all for a reasonable price.

Their chicken, cheese and bacon pie was delicious; the pastry was the perfect balance between crispy and stretchy. Coffee was generously dusted and well presented, smooth and great taste. Everything was reasonably priced. Will come again. Thanks for the great lunch!

Another confirmation of the old adage - "Eat where the locals eat". We went for breakfast there due to the reviews and weren't disappointed, we had to wait awhile for the food to come out, but it was worth it. The only criticism is maybe a little understaffed as we had to clean our own table due to the waitstaff... More

My partner and I go here quite often for breakfast and are never dissapointed. Food is always great and coffee is always good. Can't fault them. Good GF options.

Nearly full even at 11am. Awesome menu with generous servings and really delicious coffee. Don't be turned off by the shopping centre location.
