“Shock and horror”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

Business meeting yesterday. Two basic coffee orders took 25 mins, restaurant certainly not bustling with one large group, when politely raised with the staff the response from "pleasant Sophie" was "if you don't like it, don't come back!". Second time there, never again and will discourage everyone I know.

“Walked in for breakfast”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

We dropped in for breakfast while staying nearby. Most other diners seemed to be staying there. Hubby had the continental breakfast and I had the vege breakfast which was nice. Restaurant a bit dated service ok.

“Lack of staff made service slow”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

Had dinner on Thursday before seeing a show at the theatre. Only two staff covering both bar, indoor and outdoor tables which were 60% full. Took 56 mins for one drink and one main and for both orders we had to actually grab the staff attention. For $35 the two course deal is a good price but we ordered the pork belly for entre and got two very small squares. The calamari entre would have been a better option as it was large enough to share. The steak and lamb mains were tasty but you need to order sides as the size isnt great.

“Ok Brekkie, good staff poor systems ...”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Staff were excellent switched on and friendly, healthy Brekkie was fast and well presented, however to stipulate a $20 credit card minimum is unreasonable and rarely seen, and the wifi was Unavailable unless I was a hotel guest, stupid if this is supposed to be a coffee shop open to the public. Free wifi in coffee shops attracts business peeps, How hard is it !
