They couldn't make a chicken, cheese and onion toasted sandwich apparently because it's a public holiday but offered a pre-made one from the fridge ... then charged 15% extra for a public holiday on Easter Saturday. As far as I'm aware it's not a public holiday. What a rip off. Food and coffee below average anyway. Won't be back.

Had the Eggs Benedict during the Sunday markets yesterday. It was delicious and very filling. Went back today and had the Bacon and Egg breakfast. Once again it was a very filling and tasty meal. Highly recommend them for a satisfying breakfast. We will be back.

A simple ham and salad sandwich which came as a virtual salad sandwich due to the millimetre thick sliver of plastic ham all for $9.10. If they charge that extortionate price at least have leg ham. Won't be back.

Pleasant, friendly service, nice meals and flavoursome milkshakes were just what we hoped for and all were forthcoming. Quite a few other diners - mainly older people - gave the cafe a pleasant ambience. We did wait some time for our food (the milkshakes had long been consumed) but we were in no hurry. We'd happily return.

Great place for a market breakfast. After walking the entire length of the market and actually looking for a cafe to sit down to have bacon and eggs we found this cafe. Reasonable prices and great tasting. Coffee wasn't amazing but I didn't expect it to be.

I come here often on Sundays when visiting the markets. Usually just have coffee and cake and can recommend their cake selections and their pastries always look pretty good too. Everyone seems to get a nice warm welcome even when its busy on Sundays. Checked out their menu for something more substantial than my coffee and cake and made some... More

Food here some healthy, some pastries too. Friendly service. Clean ambience, relaxing too. My friend had gluten free chicken and salad. They cater for all tastes here. Pleasant music in the background.
