Great service and amazing eggs, just perfect. I loved all the robot models in there. Certainly somewhere to visit if you are in Surry Hills.

Just drinking one of the best coffees in Sydney. As good as single origin. Maybe better. In a really cute colonial cottage. Trees, picket fence, timber floor. Like being in old Singapore. Good food. Especially for a long breakfast. One of Surry hills best.
