Great for a drop in meal. The menu has good options, staff are friendly and it is priced reasonably. Has both indoor and outdoor area.

We had heard a few people rave about this place and finally decided to check it out. I would say it's just an average cafe and nothing to really rave about. We ate off the breakfast menu and it was okay quality and reasonably priced. The service was polite and the food arrived quite quickly. Nothing bad to say but... More

This place has changed hands a few times in the last couple of years I think, and although it hadn't been quite what it used to be, the overall quality has really deteriorated. The new outdoor area is great, but unfortunately that is about the only plus. Fresh orange juice was watered down so much their was no flavour, the... More

This small cafe in one of Perth Southern suburbs is a little gem. It now is extending an outside dining area as well. The food is good value for money and plenty of choice. Staff were very pleasant. It is a BYO cafe. Don't go to expect a view but to enjoy great food service and company whilst you dine.... More

Great food and service. Personal touch from chef is a welcome treat! A great local cafe that is reliable for excellent food and service every time. Menu is very good value and BYO makes it a very affordable choice for couples or families. They make great coffee too!

Had a bit of time to waste and decided to check out the Cutlery Drawer for coffee and cake. My coffee, whilst not the most generous size cup was delicious, the orange cake to die for. I was only going to eat half of it but couldn't stop myself. Moist and full of flavour with mandarine pieces on top -... More

Lovely cafe not far from the river in a leafy suburb. There are the usual suspects on the breakfast menu along with a couple of unusual dishes. Service is quick and the food is beautifully prepared. I had the Raw Energy bowl of granola, yogurt, honey, tiny slices of rhubarb and minutely diced sweet apple all delicately enhanced by a... More

WOW. What a find! This was the best food we have been served in a very long time. Every meal was fresh, tasty and very well presented. I highly recommend you try this hidden gem. Our new local. Can't believe they have been open for 1 1/2 years and we have just discovered them. We will definitely be back. And... More

We took my Mum here today for a birthday lunch. Only a small cafe but both food and service were good. Chef/Owner? came out to ask if everything was ok. Good selection of small and main meals so there is something for everyone. Also a cabinet with quiche, lasagne, paninis etc. You can choose from breakfast menu til 3pm. Good... More
