Going here for a cup of coffee during the day or maybe a light lunch when you not fussed about the atmosphere if it is not very busy may be ok but pick somewhere else in glenelg if you want good food and you want to talk to the people you are with at dinner time. There are plenty of eateries in Glenelg that charge less where the food is better. I had ravioli which were really ordinary and my friend had moussaka whereby the few pieces of eggplant were hiding in the soup of sauce. The noise when it is busy makes it very unpleasant. If they invested in some upholstered chairs and fabric wall hangings some of the noise issue could be addressed

We have taken to breaking out journey up with a short break where we can sit down with an iced coffee. This place suited is fine.

Not a lot of atmosphere. Open plan with street side seating. (Not on the street). Good service. Well priced. The iced coffee was good. Not too sweet.

While it was nothing special I'm not sure what could have made it a nicer experience except perhaps a bit of a face lift on the tired decor.

I would go back but I would try other places first. There is no shortage of places that serve iced coffees in Glenelg.

Always wanted to try this restaurant as it always seems busy at the weekends. So today we decided to give it a whirl...
Both girls chose the mixed berry smoothie, which they both agreed it was yummy!!! The 10 year old chose the chicken/avocado wrap. It was huge but she ate it all and said it was really lovely. The 7 year old had the children's salt and pepper squid with chips. Although she ate all the squid she found it very greasy. She said it was yummy and tender. There was a huge plate of fries accompanied with tomato sauce and a wedge of lemon. I have to agree the squid was far to greasy!!! We chose the pepperoni pizza, this started really nicely but the crust got really hard as it sat whilst we ate it. However flavour was nice.
We will return and give some of the other menu items a go. The waitress was really good and friendly.
