If you're hungry don't order the pancakes here, the order was three small pancakes with a thimble of maple syrup, they should really delete this from their menu as it is an embarrassment to the place. The other breakfast was substantial but the eggs were over cooked which we sent back. The table beside us sent back two orders just... More

Dear customer, Appreciate for your review as we do treasure suggestions of every customer. We all feel quite sad to read your 2-star review. In fact, we would be more than happy to offer you more maple syrup if you requested at that time. Actually, there was the other thing made us impressed as you ordered Fried eggs, Sunny side... More

Dear customer, Very sorry to hear you had a bad experience and that is disappointing to read it. We were actually so busy on that day because of the Rock. Our staff were also trying to let every customers know there was a wait for meal at least from 20 mins. Anyway, we still feel so sorry about this to... More

Stayed there for business meeting at a hotel near by and this was perfect handy to it for a 7am breakfast. The drinks are lovely and the smoothies tasty (and filling). Colleagues had some granola type thing and it looked very nice!

I have visited this cafe twice in three days and had Moroccan eggs. They are spicy and most delicious. Their coffee is strong and wonderful.

Certainly service with a smile and prompt delivery of menus and water. We had breakfast here on a Sunday morning and sat outside although there was room inside also. You do have to share with the dog owner brigade but fine by us. Very nice hotcakes with plenty of syrup. Pretty flower petals on the plate and flowers on tables... More

Visited on a public holiday they advised the wait for food 20 mins got lunch after 45 min wait. Asked what sauces came in the burger advised a mango chutney asked for something different but also when it came out it had garlic aioli - I wish I had been advised this when asked what sauces were in the burger....
