Went here instead of deluccas one Saturday. Was moderately busy ... but coffee and cakes were good. The sound reverberates a bit .. But it's ok 😀

Nice little coffee shop, with a good range of cabinet food and food from a menu. The coffee is very nice and the food is also very nice. A good range of vegetarian options.

Good coffee, good food choices and reasonable prices. Staff were friendly and there was a good amount of seating available, parking wasn't so good

Go to cafe almost every week here. Staff know what we get each week and makes you feel really special. They make a good long black. The atmosphere is good, right in central cbd. Been there for lunch and breakfasts and food is nice.

Stopped in for a coffee on the way past. Friendly staff, great coffee. One of the few places around that doesnt over extract the coffee. Was very smooth.

Coffee was ok food very nice - coffee and cake - sat at a dirty table, Service a 2/10 - had to ask to wipe the table (food stuck to the table) after food and coffee brought - got an attitude and a 0 on the wipe effort. Not what you expect.

Service was pretty slow and food wasn't the greatest. Beef burger was okay but my partner wasn't to happy with his eggs benny. On the plus side, the hot chocolate I had was delicious :)

Stopped in here yesterday after visiting the Farmers Market - i.e. it was early! And cold! We were made to feel welcome instantly and enjoyed having a bit of space to spread out. This is not to say it wasn't busy - it was buzzing - but they allocated diners more space than many do who are intent in cramming... More

The food is nice but takes a long long time to come! The cafe wasnt that busy so dont know what the hold up was.
