Although we went for lunch on a hot day, the place was cool and inviting. We had burgers with potato wedges and lots of chilled Milo shakes. It is a typical hangout place for friends and I think it must be bustling with activity in the evening. Good food for sure.

Great little cafe for morning breakfast of real bacon and great coffee. It's a place much favoured by people walking pearl hill in the mornings. Jason the owner is very helpful and friendly.

Great little place for burgers and milk shakes. Love their food. I get the jalapeno burger and really like it. They also have good coffee as they are a coffee shop as well.

I lived very nearby but had not try it for years. So decided to try it out one fine Saturday morning. Boy, I was not disappointed! Ordered the BLT and big breakfast and both are just heavenly! The scrambled egg are with cheese and so fluffy. Veges served are also fresh. One of my favorite breakfast spot now.

Nice relaxed atmosphere for breakfast. Do a pretty decent English breakfast with all the trimmings, including bacon and home made sausage. The Tea, could be better not sure where they get the water from. Reasonably priced and pretty good service.

This is the second time we have been to this venue. While the staff appear to be honest and helpful the food was not up to par. Having said that, the coffee was very good. It's time for the Cafe to deliver authentic food. Also the chicken pies were mostly potato and to be honest I failed to find any... More
