Some nice Swiss treats mixed with Aussie local beverages e.g. Bundy Lemon Drink. Nice cakes and gingerbread assortments. Nice alfresco area.

Relaxed place to catch up over breakfast...but go with an appetite!! The chocolate pancakes were scrumptious the eggs/bacon/mushrooms on sour dough great and good strong coffee. Great prices... $9-$12ish. Both kids and adults enjoyed it...we'll be back.

This cake shop serves excellent coffee and simple elegant pastries!!! A must visit for a quick bite in the morning. Their kransky's and bratwurst topped off with melted Swiss cheese are to die for. So why wait any longer. Drop by now. I can't wait to try their waffles next. YES, they have WAFFLES!!!!!
