Wonderful buzz, very interesting menu and a bit different. Fresh food, prompt attentive service (without being in your face). Being in Erskineville, parking can be a challenge. Always busy so book if you can.

Beautiful food, something a little different for breakfast. Also check out the paatries and sweets in the front counter.

We really liked this place. 8 out of 10 dishes were tasty. Do not order their Big Breakfast. Its just big but mediocre in taste. My favourites are their Falafels and Mushroom pastry parcel pictured below. Good service too!

Coffee good, Reuben sandwich was really good. Would go back for that alone. Comfortable welcoming space and the service was friendly and efficient.
