Great service and a wide selection of bread and pastries. The homemade pies are delicious! The atmosphere is spacious yet ambient. Highly recommend for brunch and lunch.

Average food and coffee. There are plenty of better cafes around. They charge a premiun to dine in compared to takeaway. Went to their Battery point cafe which is the historical part of town, Go to Daci & Daci French bakery for a PREMINUM experience,

Jackman and Ross always serve really nice sweet and savory pastries and coffee. Great for a coffee catch up, breakfast or a lunch meeting. Beautiful pastries and quiches served with salad or french pastries for desert. Coffee always good. Service always prompt.

Came across this beautiful bakery whilst out for a morning walk through Battery Point. Our biggest issue was deciding what to order as everything looked amazing. We finally decided on the lemon curd tart which had to be one of the best I've ever tasted, and mint choc mousse tart which was delicious. Only reason I gave a 4 star... More

My husband and I stopped in for afternoon tea while sightseeing in battery point and Salamanca . Wow this place is beautiful, a nice quaint cafe with an amazing display of sweets and baked breads. We enjoyed a coffee and the berry and cream cheese tart. Definitely a winner 👍👍

Their pastries are probably the best I've eaten outside of France. The service is good and the seating is informal. The coffee can only be described as meh. It was coffee, that is all. Their bread is average but their pastries are class.

Great place for a pastry or something more substantial for brunch. Great hot coffee and friendly staff. Good range and theres something for everyone. The only issue is limited parking in the area.

Consistently good coffee food and service. Our favourite cafe! Lovely staff with real personalities. Get in early for a table on weekends! Fabulous freshly baked bread and amazing (huge!) croissants. Creative sweet and savoury delights. Never disappoints!
