Stopped here on an early trip to Brighton on Labour day, lots of parking available and I loved the seating and design of the cafe. Staff were very efficient and friendly. Long black was good, not the greatest in Melbourne but at the top end. My partner was more than happy with her soya flat white. We both had the... More

My friends coffee was burnt and had to be remade. My almond late was split (bottom half water top half foam) and tasteless. Staff were presumptuous and there was a dog poo smell out the front seating area. Sorry guys, not Brighton standard!

The coffee ice cold, the bacon disgusting and the attitude was awful. Not worth wasting your time visiting this establishment if you are hungry. Not worth wasting your money here!

We stopped here to pick up beverages and snacks for a bus ride to Bondi Beach. The service was okay and the chai tea was good.

Normally the food & service are always good, however yesterday service was not up to standard. The owner was very curt, & abrupt. Standard of food has changed as well. Staff bringing food to tables that were ordered by other customers. No organisation.

Came for breakfast. Nice servers, very attentive and friendly. The menu is fairly inventive but really what we have all become used to for breakfast - kale, freekah, acai. Food was good enough. The Jerusalem plate was ok - smashed avo delicious. Quite pricey.

Myself and my partner went for lunch today. And we left happy but yet very disappointed. We ordered the corn fritters , the falafel sandwich and a weak latte. The corn fritters and latte were spot on . However the falafel sandwich was not good at all. I had my first bite and thought hmmm this taste strange and had... More

Our food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was both friendly and prompt. I particularly liked the ginger, honey, lemon and mint tea but the coffee was excellent too. We will return!

Had the GF potato rostie and salmon. Very nice. Well presented. Tasty. Good value at $20. Coffee was ok - average really. Staff friendly and atmosphere good - but a bit noisy. Worth a visit.

Amazing menu, service & vibe! One of my new fav breakfast places I highly recommend. I was having serious food envy as everyone was receiving their breakfast. Therefore the only solution is for me to go back and make my way through the menu 😋
