Really terrific breakfast - not the typical egg and bacon although they are on the menu but more interesting flavours and ingredients. Excellent coffee too.

This quiet corner of Leura with windows open to the street serves GREAT fresh food and quickly. Wine list is primarily local and excellent prices. Perfect for lunch in a hurry in Leura....but don't tell too many people!!
