Lovely Lebanese mezze plate with labne, hummus and pita. Good coffee. Friendly staff. Worth a visit.

I really like this cafe, it is one of my favourites to read the paper at. In the morning the sun hits the tables just right to enjoy a bit of Vit D with your morning coffee. Had a chocolate tart too which was rich and amazing.

Been coming here since it opened. Gera & his wonderful staff have transformed it from a good cafe into an excellent one - certainly my wife & I prefer it to all others in Lismore! Attention to detail (even seat covers & rugs for winter), beautifully presented food, great variety of meal and deals - and always today's newspapers. This sort of service & ambience wouldn't look out of place in Melbourne or Sydney, but to find it in a lovely country town like Lismore is a joy. Coffee is not only made well from the excellent "Locale" range, but also exactly how you like it, to strength & even temperature if you like it hotter than the very slurpable 60 degrees! Now open on Saturday mornings, an excellent choice for a social breakfast. Highly recommended.
