Good coffee to be had here, and if you are taking away, the cups are beautifully decorated and organically made so as not to harm the environment. Waffles are worth coming for, especially the chocolate waffles.

Visited with friends for brunch on the long weekend Monday. Great staff. Great service. Great coffee. Great barista. Such a nice atmosphere. Food was filling & enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit.

Coffee was good but food was super average. Place looked heaps funky but and service was fast although food was barely warm, bread was woolies bought sliced wholemeal. I hope they bring the quality of food up cause it has such a good atmosphere/vibe

Lovely spot for lunch in a cosy and quaint cafe. Great selection of Sandwiches, jacket potatoes and toasties as well as speciality hot and cold drinks. Blueberry and white chocolate scone was amazing with a pomegranate juice! Free wi fi was a bonus.
