Food was ok- lots of variety and different styles of omelets, great price for a breakfast platter, but the food was just ok. My order was up in less than two minutes but the eggs were somehow overcooked and dried up in that short amount...More

They continue to do decent breakfasts on my stops in each week. Better than most in the area for a reasonable price. They haven't disappointed yet. Near in mind this isn't fancy dining, it's just deli food done a bit better than others.

Reasonable food all served in polystyrene trays. Huge choice of items for brekkie, 4 of eat for $40. Clean the place up and I would image it would be a gold mine

I guess Cafe 45 becomes my place for a breakfast sandwich by default. They are better than the other places I've tried in the near vicinity. Not my daily stop but my occasional stop. Good breakfast sandwiches.

Wandered around looking for breakfast and thought we'd try this place. Food OK only, and felt they worked fro speed rather than customer service. I prefer my food to arrive delivered to me on a plate.

I've stopped here twice for morning breakfast sandwiches. Pretty good overall. Prompt service. Reasonable prices. Good quality food. I haven't tried it for lunch yet but I will. For now, my occasional breakfast sandwich brings me here!

We stumbled upon this place down the street from our hotel when looking for inexpensive breakfast options. Place was clean, service very friendly. Food was very reasonably priced and portions generous.

We stumbled on this café whilst looking for somewhere for a quick lunch. They offer a good selection of freshly prepared sushi and hot dishes and it is great for lunch. Inexpensive, quick and easy. There is a seating area upstairs. We ended up coming...More

We found this close to our hotel, and we really enjoyed the breakfasts. The first day we went, they were out of bagels. I tried the French toast. It was really good (and I am picky about French toast!) We also tried the pancakes and...More
