    Lunch today was lovely - the miso sesame trout bowl was tasty and my friend also enjoyed her lamb dish. Miss the buzzing ambience so look forward to coming back when restrictions have lifted.

    The menu was extensive with really interesting and varied food. The coffee was excellent. . The service was pretty good considering how busy it was. The venue, however, was quite noisy and made conversation difficult.

    We have been going for pre-matinee lunch for many years and have never been disappointed.

    Great menu with lovely selection of salads. We go on Saturdays pre-theatre and there is always a contented buzz about the place. Wish they could be cloned and pop up in Wollongong.

    The lunch time service was so slow. It took over 35 mins for our food to arrive which just is not quick enough for a lunch break. I love the food but they need to speed up!

    Great spot for brunch - mix of savoury and sweet items on the menu. They also serve coffee in a cone. Food came out quite quickly.

    The food is so fresh and delicious, and the right amount too. Efficient service, cosy place and not you can still have a conversation without having to yell. I LOVE the fact that you can book. My new favourite!

About the restaurant

A cafe after our own heart

This suburban cafe is cute as pie and it's one of our local faves. Enjoy a hearty breakfast feast before work, we love the maple and cranberry granola and the halloumi stack. Other highlights include the bacon butty and the house smoked salmon!

The lunch time menu is fresh and exciting think hearty sambos, fresh salads and a few burgers and salads. Everything is excellent - period.

Pair your meal with a smoothie, a juice, a coffee or a craft beer - anything goes!

Best dish: Braised beef cheek with tomato, kritharaki pasta, skordalia and mizithra cheese.
