We've been here a few times for a snack and a cup of coffee. The place is quite large, and has a good atmosphere. Nice friendly people, attentive service.

Lunch here recently - it was terrific. We ate inside, with the big windows open so it felt like you were eating outside. But a bit removed from the traffic on Toorak Rd. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Good wine list, mostly available by...More
