Coffee was great!! Menu looks equally as great, so I will will definitely head there for breakfast one day soon. Friendly, efficient staff - and very busy, so it is obviously a well-loved destination.

Came for breakfast straight off our flight from Sydney and was pleasantly surprised. Coffee was perfect and the food even better. Chilli eggs is a must have!

This is an awesome little cafe serving up excellent coffee, creamy chai lattes and wonderful food. We had the pulled pork sanga and salmon salad and both were really fantastic and filled our tummies. Great relaxed vibe and nice staff.

Came here for breakfast as we used to love it when it was down the laneways. Since moving to the street front the cost has escalated! Coffee is still great but the juices are now extremely overpriced! You get less than 100mL of pulpy sludge...More

Thanks for your feedback, I'm sorry you feel this way. We have re-opened with the same menu and pricing as previously, including the surcharge for eggs cooked fried or scrambled. As our cooking equipment is also still the same as in our previously tiny venue,...More
