Stopped here and not sorry at all. Great place, busy but of course that's for a reason and the locals love this place. Food and drinks are plentiful and warm inside. Lots of character and will be coming here again one day.

Best eggs Benny around. Fresh and tasty with artistic flair. Try the pizza for lunch. All enjoyed in a quirky building. Options for the gluten free too.

Very good all round; great coffee, friendly folks running the place. We had an excellent Thai style salad with beef and prawns, and some nice Calamari. All at reasonable prices. We left happiness filled.
