We popped in for coffee and it was good - I drink black /no sugar so look for good coffee taste! I could catch up on wi-fi as it is free.

Revelations always has an awesome atmosphere. You can sit outside in the sun and listen to nostalgic music. They have really good ice tea for kids (Sunshine Tea made locally). Their coffee is good and breakfast very good value for money.

With a student and pensioner friendly menu and free wi-fi, this is a popular spot. Located in Pepper Grove Mall under some enormous and ancient pepper trees, it is a pretty spot. Lots of menu specials make it affordable to this on a tight budget....More

We stopped here for a quick hot chocolate and slice of cake after having taken my fiance on a tour of my old university. I was pleasantly surprised! The hot chocolate was good and the cakes were AMAZING! I would highly recommend the Carrot cake!

The place is a typical student coffee shop and makes decent meals and good coffee. For a value meal it's worth a stop by
