Second visit and honestly only a little improved. The Poached Eggs with Mushrooms was served quickly and enjoyed. The Corned Beef Hash, which I had last time was little improved. At least it was hot, but still very oily and not that enjoyable. The coffee is still good tho.

An extensive breakfast menu which includes some great vegetarian menu. I went for lunch and was not offered a lunch menu and in fact I'm not sure there is one. I had a vegetable frittata and it came with a salad. Quite satisfying and tasty. The freshly squeezed juice was also delicious.

They have great breakfast and lunch food! And it's very reasonably priced as well. The takeaway lunch specials are great

Stopped here for lunch between meetings. Had driven past many times and looked like had great character....from the outside at least. Once entering the disappointment started. Tables not cleared and had to pile up what was left on table to be able to sit down. Limited menu and fairly ordinary meals arrived which were not worth finishing before cash only... More

First time visit to this local cafe. Packed for lunch. Good service and atmosphere. Has an outside courtyard as well. Had the rolled omelette with bacon and a smoothie. Great taste and filling to boot. Well worth a visit if you are feeling hungry.

We came as a group of 14 (with one adorable dog) and we so well looked after. All the meals were spot on and the girls were really accommodating, moving tables for us and coming back to ask if we need anything else. The coffee was superb, most of us ordered a second cup! The portion size is huge and... More

This cafe is right on the main drag and it's excellent. The service was attentive and the coffee was strong and aromatic. My partner ordered the French Toast (with maple syrup, whipped cream, bacon and poached pear) and he struggled to finish it. There was so much goodness on one plate. They're value for money and they don't mess around... More

Big Brekky looked like the place for breakfast, some great reviews on foodie sites and just a few blocks away from our new home. While the coffee is good and the overall setting is nice - though the outside area out back could do with a little work - the food was just not that good. I had the corned... More
