There were 7 in our group who had breakfast here on a Sunday morning. The food was delicious. I ordered the "Spendlove in the morning" which was the big breakfast and enough to keep me going all day. My wife had the Bircher Muslei which was delicious, and such a big serving she couldn't eat it all. Just about everyone... More

Located away from the beaches at the Brickworks on Bundall Rd away from the Gold Coast beach precincts. Overall first impression was that it was a buzzy little cafe with an inviting atmosphere. I had a club sandwich which at $23 seemed expensive but I thought it must be good at that price. Not so! very disappointing, maybe at $15... More

2 days ago we went there for lunch. My partner had a Wagyu Burger and I tried the turkey baguette. The meet on the burger was dry and without any flavour. The baguette was burnt and there was hardly any cranberry sauce on it. The turkey "meet" was just shredded supermarket quality, the camembert was cold, and the "fancy" lettuce... More

Good service, pretty fast. The coconut smoothies are great and a healthier option to your standard smoothies. Coffee wasn't too bad. The food was nice however their menu is a little overpriced in comparison to other cafes who serve better food and better coffees. Good atmosphere. Overall not a bad place but not somewhere i would go regularly as there... More

Enjoyed the Salmon light meal. Friendly staff and great bustling location. Coffee was good too. Usually come here for breakfast but lunch was a nice change. Will be back.

An overpriced menu which to be fair is in line with the rest of the shops here. The staff had to be prompted to take our order, despite the number of them around. I opted for the Wagyu burger at $25.90 & the burger was served on what appeared to be a supermarket wholegrain roll & came with a very... More

A wonderful setting and a solid menu of interesting dishes. The calamari is outstanding! We've been three times now during our short stay and love that you can combine a delicious meal with some interesting shopping around the restaurant in other Ferry Road Market shops...
