Popped in for breakfast with our 2 boys on Sunday morning. The couple in kitchen were so friendly and our breakfast was yummy. It's not a mega trendy, artisan type place but it's perfect for a tasty, well cooked breakfast and coffee and very well priced too. Wish we had more time and we would have come back for a... More

I ordered crumbed steak and fries eggs. It was really good food. The cafe doesn't make you to be disappointed. In my opinions It was better than dome and coffee clubs. I'll get there again. 약간 돈까스 같아요! 맛있어요! 다시 꼭 갈거예여 빈도 맛있고 빵이 킬링파트예여 진짜 맛있어요 두번 두세여 택시기사님들이 많이 찾거라고여 시자생러드도 맛있업ㅎ여서 다음엔 그거먹으려고여

Visited for a quick breakfast with friends before heading to the airport. I ordered the bacon and eggs which was only $10 - and I got 3 pieces of toast (just normal bread) plus two eggs (cooked perfectly) and heaps of yummy bacon (also cooked perfectly!). I was very happy with the quality of the meal for what I paid.... More

This is one of those cafes that you need to know about otherwise you could just walk past. It's not flash nor trendy, but the food is fresh and delicious. I had the best egg and bacon wrap there ... and I've had many all over the state. The other great asset is that it's not far from Rusty's Markets,... More

Quick and delicious! The counter staff could be a little friendlier and appreciative of your business but I continue to come back because the chef works his magic... And he is always friendly!!

This cafe sells beautiful fresh sandwiches, toasted sandwiches, burgers and all cafe fare. They also do great breakfasts that the taxi drivers all come for. Nothing is too hard - just tell them what you want and they'll do it for you. They are happy to take phone orders and have it ready when you arrive. Very helpful and friendly... More
