Had breakfast here with friends yesterday- our first visit. A really funky place- unique in Newcastle. Lots of old motorbikes and memorabilia to create an individual atmosphere and ambience. More importantly, the coffee was great- strong, bitter - REAL coffee! The Old Favourite Bacon and Egg roll was HUGE and very tasty. Lots of quirky aspects in the place eg in the men's toilet, the door handle is an old petrol pump, and to flush the urinal, you stomp on a bass drum pedal, which starts the flusher, and so on. Great to see a different approach to the burgeoning cafe scene , which in Newcastle seems to be going from strength to strength. Recommended for a different experience.

I follow this place on Facebook and saw a weekend special advertised - any burger and a beer for $15. We hadn't gotten around to visiting but decided to try it out for the special.

Burgers were really big and delicious - we had the "Chopper" chicken burger and the classic Wickham beef burger. Both were cooked perfectly, came out within 15 mins of ordering and came with the perfect size ie small, basket of fries. I thought the menu said sweet potato fries but ours were standard fries, still tasted really good. We would have been happy to pay full price for the quality!

Service was lovely and we enjoyed a relaxed meal and beer outside in the afternoon sun. Will definitely be back to try out breakfast and coffee.

A epically cool establishment, however we waited 25 minutes for 2 take away coffees, understandably they were busy, but maybe if we had been warned the wait would be so long we wouldn't have bothered. Coffee was tasty but milk was far too hot, lots of potential. Quirky, friendly & beautiful staff, add another for busy days!
