Although it isn't my favourite place to eat in town and their service is somewhat lacking as well as their venue, I continue to come back just for their falafel wrap. Cheap and very delicious.

The Modern Grocer has a great vibe, a little trendy, and on the morning of our visit there were very few tables available inside or out, at the back of the cafe there is a small courtyard.

A lovely friendly staff and great coffee. Keeping the authenticity of country town meets inner city. Also like the sot of forced companionship of the big table in the middle to either chat to others or not. Now they have moved around the corner the space is marvellously used to its best.

Limited selection of salads when I went in at 12.30pm.....lunchtime? Would have thought at prime time there would be more choice. Guy on till had no idea what was in one of salads, servers should have that info to hand. Coffee was very good tho.

Staff were very attentive without being over attentive. Staff were very friendly and smiled at lot. Food was lovely and fresh and good sized portions and value for money. The mushrooms with the big breakfast were the most delicious I have tasted in a cooked breakfast.

We came for breakfast. Really friendly staff. Great food. Would come again and recommend. Only negative is my toast was slightly under toasted to my liking, but very minor personal preference thing which I'm sure they would have been happy fixing for me had I said something. Overall very tasty and good atmosphere
