The man here made me feel very welcome. He was friendly and helpful. I had a breakfast panini that was fine . I needed a quick breakfast and that's what I got.

This place is generally bustling with people, some office workers, others book worms. The menu is varied and interesting offering a variety of yummy lunches and snacks. Their melting moments bikkies in jars at the front counter are mouth-wateringly good. Try one.
