Dropped in for an early Sunday breakfast. What a refreshingly friendly place! Attentive and happy staff prepared to interact with you and have a joke with you. Nice food, good coffee and really well priced. Well worth a visit.

Had the fresh oysters & Moreton Bay Bug Risotto. Both really fresh. Considering the night we went there was a function on, the service was still good & food brought out quickly. Would happily go back again.
