Have eaten here on and off over years, and it stays very consistent middle eastern vegetarian style menu. Not necessarily the most exciting or innovative cafe/restaurant, but it's one of the best value in terms of good portion size on salad ingredients especially. One of my favourites for breakfast is their green omelette.

We often eat here as the food is consistently good. We love the mixed platter to share of falafel, homous, babaganoush, pickles & salad. Very chilled atmosphere eating on the deck especially when there is a cool breeze from the river on a hot day.

We visited here and got the best hit chocolate according to the kids!! We also got a lovely share platter of breads and dips with a heap of yummy salads and falafels and other things. The food was super fresh and reasonably priced. Even the meat lovers enjoyed the food and were fussed it lacked meat. Super restaurant who offer... More

Consistently good, simple, fresh, tasty food served in a friendly and casual setting. Lovely outdoor deck gives a bit of respite from the summer sun but still allows for great chat and people watching. Love the green ginger smoothie (and I always ask for added chilli to spice it up!).. oh and there is WiFi too..!

We had the Charchukka and scrambled eggs. They were pretty good but nothing special. Glasses were a bit grotty and there was no water. We shared with the people from the next table. Now their falafel is do die for so go for lunch or dinner or just have falafel for breakfast ;-)

I called in here for lunch and was impressed with the fresh, healthy and delicious food on offer. Plenty of choice, simply presented, and a casual atmosphere with a nice shady deck to escape the heat. Friendly staff and quick service, dogs also welcome. I'll definitely eat here again next time I visit.

Thank Felicity R
