Had booked a table for 3 but one wasn’t reserved for us. Didn’t matter as there were plenty of tables available. Service was prompt and meals delivered quickly We had the Wagu Berger, Calamari and Asian Chicken Salad. All were delicious Cover charge for BYO was reasonable Ideal venue for coffee and cake/Breakfast or Brunch With the concrete floors and high ceilings it was quite noisy There was a lot of noise and plate crashing coming from the open kitchen

Great service, good food, pity it is such a noisy venue.
So glad you loved our service and food, however we do acknowledge we can be noisy given how busy we get.. when we are full we certainly have a buzz around the venue, despite acoustic panels .. We are investigating additional noise baffles which will help.

Good sized serves. The beef cheek main and calamari are delicious.
So glad you enjoyed your meals. Our calamari is extremely popular, closely followed by beef cheeks!!!

A nice routine cafe to drop in. Well prepared and friendly service. The place can be a lot more memorable with more interesting dishes on the menu to make it stand out from the rest in the neighborhood. Good, consistent and safe choice if you don't want to experiment with something different.

The food was very good, but the service was a little slow and disinterested. We forgave this as it was a busy night, but what we really can’t forgive is being told at 9.15 pm, after just finishing our mains, that the kitchen was about to close! The waitress said if we wanted anything else we should order it right then, and proceeded to stand over us. The website clearly states they are open till 10 pm but they vouldn’t Wait to get us out! This will definitely put us off from a return visit in the future.
Dear Anonymous, I am so pleased you enjoyed your meals on Friday night, however am extremely disappointed that you felt rushed or pushed for dessert. Friday night was a busy night with a large group as well as smaller tables and our kitchen always stays open for guests regardless of the time. In fact we were still open and serving at 11.30 pm!! Your waitress, who has recently joined us, remembers you well, and certainly did not mean to rush you or lack in caring for you. She has a lovely personality , thrives on caring for customers, however did recall advising that the kitchen was preparing for close at 9.40 and if you would like anything more, she will advise the kitchen who will be delighted to proceed with any order. Please be assured that we did could not wait to get rid of you as we all knew we had a late nigh ahead of us and were happy to look after everyone. I hope this clarifies the situation.
