Came for breakfast. Ordered coffees and cooked breakfast. After 20 mins the breakfast arrived but still no coffee.... had to wait another 5 mins for that. Food was nice, but drinks service not up to scratch.

A small and friendly cafe with a good choice of both menu and cabinet foods. Sit inside or out and watch the world go by as you sip your flat white and enjoy the tasty food. Will definitely go back.

I've been multiple times and have never been disappointed by the food or the coffee. The steamed pork buns are one of my personal favourites. I love that there are always breakfast and lunch options available at brunch time so, no matter your mood, you...More
