Out for Saturday morning brunch. I had the the Big Plumster (big breakfast) and a flat white. Coffee was there or thereabouts for Cuba St. The food was a tad average. One poached egg arrived already broken and the other was overcooked (depriving me of the satisfaction of breaking them!). The components were all different temperatures ranging from piping hot...

Good location, just in the city centre with outside seating. Breakfast and lunch options, service friendly and quick. Price is ok. Recommended for quick meals and lunch break as well as a big breakfast!

While on Cuba Street we were just attracted by what appeared to be a fun place to stop for brunch and were greeted by friendly staff. Coffee was great and our food very tasty. So much more than just for the atmosphere.

Great vibe, lovely staff and the coffee is delicious. There are many places for refreshments on Cuba Street, but this is totally worth popping in for!

We went here for lunch after it had been recommended to us, glad we checked it out. The server helped us choose a delightful beer and I choose the pork belly salad. Not having ever had pork belly I was a little hesitant about trying it but so glad I did. I would recommend it to anyone. My husband had... More

Came here on a very busy Friday night - it was very quick to fill up despite myself and my partner being one of the only tables there on arrival. Ordered an entree of the potted salmon to start. This was very very good! Served with lavosh crackers and pickled cucumber. Was plenty for the two of us to share.... More

Me and my boyfriend came for brunch and loved everything about this place. We sat outside in the sunshine. I had pancakes with maple syrup and bacon and my boyfriend had the "major plumster" which was like a full breakfast. Food was gorgeous, service was friendly and fast, literally nothing to complain about here apart from the cheeky pigeons!

I have had lunch here twice recently, and both times I opted for a veganised salad..both of which were delicious. Not cheap considering they don't have meat or fish in them, and are not huge portions, but very tasty components such as candied walnuts and berry vinaigrette. My companion had a prawn and soba salad today and pasta the other... More

...this is the place to have a coffee and chill out! The café looks out onto the pedestrian zone of Cuba St where there's a mini climbing frame/slide combo (and large sit-on chameleon) alongside a water feature which your young kids will love to play on. The service was great and the coffee was also tasty.
