Overall a nice place. However, sometimes salad is very poorly washed. Probably (hopefully), it’s not common practice to do so?

Called in here for breakfast. Had an excellent coffee (flat white) and a tasty scrambled egg on toast. Unfussy, mid range price. Nice atmosphere and friendly, hardworking staff. Wouldn’t hesitate to return here.

Stumbled across this place while waiting for someone who was at the dental hospital just along the road, and was so glad I did. It's hidden away up a ramp, but get yourself up there. Great coffee, great service (not the fastest) and nice cakes...More
