Good attentive staff, all meals at the table (x 5) were good. Only thing not fabulous was the noisy atmosphere

I often eat here with friends and/or relatives and the food never disappoints. The coffee is great and the staff are friendly. A great place to eat :)

Outstanding quality of food. Chef & owner Aaron has a keen eye for detail - matching his ingredients expertly. Can't believe this place is in Wollongong. House red was exceptional - an easy to drink drop that paired well with the meal. Service was excellent. Worthy of a visit.

This cute little cafe actually has lots of space. The decor is simple but inviting. The breakfast menu is short but there options for extras. I had the jaffle - it needed more filling but was tasty. The chai and coffee were both good.

First impressions get you in the door. The coffee and teapot arrived within 10 minutes and if you like your coffee hot, you will be pleased. Naked floorboards ensure you will have to yell at your company, but hey, thats normal these days. After we wiped someone else's lipstick from the tea cup, we got distracted by the dirt on the sugar bowl, and well, it was all downhill after that. The coffee resembled warm milk with a coffee flavour. However, the tea was excellent. In summary, maybe serving B grade coffee to local flush bogans works, but not with us. And we dont like dirty dishes. We rate it a 6 out if 10. You will find better.
