Thoroughly enjoyed a late lunch here, we had the lasagna and the burger. Chilled our vibe we loads of variety of cabinet food and menu, perfect if you are Gluten Free, Veg or Vegan.

So we went on a family holiday to New Zealand, and I am vegan.... Well I think we hang out here nearly every day! I tried many things of the menu and thoroughly enjoyed every meal! Was so sad when we left !

This is a pretty neat and cool cafe. I had brunch there and the food and service were both very good. I'm a bit of a coffee nut (working in a cafe in Sydney) and the coffee was good, but not as great as I had heard... but it's a very particular taste thing. Good vibe and a good menu.... More

Came here for a lunch with friends and we all ordered the same thing - The healthy espresso brekkie, we were very surprised to get store bought multi grain bread and hash browns, they definitely not were made in house. The presentation was also severely lacking! Perhaps we ordered the wrong dish but we will take our patronage somewhere else... More

I have dined here three times in the last few weeks. The prices are fantastic. There is always a great selection of food on offer from the menu and display counter. They cater a lot for vegetarian, vegan and Gluten free diets. The food I had was all delicious. I highly recommend this place and will certainly be back

I hadn't visited midnight espresso in probably a year until today! Definitely wont be making that mistake again! I came in with a friend and we shared the vegan nachos and had a juice each. The nachos were delicious; I'm don't generally eat plant based as I'm an avid dairy fan but I could definitely do it if I got... More

I first came here in the late 1980's and today's owners have kept the alternate feel going without compromising the quality of its reputation... long black coffee was superb .... would have given 5 stars but for the absence of free wifi!
