We sat to just have a drink and use the wifi, but the bar area has so much history and things to look at, we spent more time than we planned. It is a great place to sit and the food smelled divine! Ginger spriz mocktail was wonderful!

We had fish and chips and garlic ciabatta(please excuse the spelling) bread. Was tasty food and enjoyable dining outside on the footpath, people watching. The wine was average and apparently the beer was excellent.

We had dinner at Emporium and we're impressed by the quality and variety of food we ordered. Even the light bites were generous and tasty. Great flavours and reasonable prices plus lovely art Deco surroundings. Highly recommended.

The decor and location was number one. The staff were awesome friendly and attentive with great recommendations and very familiar with the menu.
