Now called Mowbray Eatery, we went because it was recommended on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed. The bacon and egg rolls were delicious. Next time we'll know to ask for slightly more cooked eggs, but that's just our preference. It definitely didn't detract from the flavours....More

Fantastic coffee. But given it is a 'place to be seen' in Lane Cove, I feel on the outer, as the owners don't know my name, but always call the regualrs by their names! Okay service. Overall, only okay. Best for a take away coffee

Love the food at this place. Always fresh, always beautifully presented. They are very popular, so often quite busy, but the food standard is still there. Staff are friendly and try really hard. The pumpkin breakfast was excellent.

I visited with my Nanna last week and the staff when above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. Foods great, a little hidden gem! Worth a visit!
