I come often; most mornings, in fact. The service is friendly and efficient and they remember how I like my coffee which is nice. The breakfast menu has recently changed and I love what I have tasted so far. The new sweetcorn fritters with spicy avocado and baked eggs are fabulous. The omelettes are consistently good. The bruschetta is lovely. Plain scrambled eggs is always good and I like the way they offer many varieties of bread, including rye, Turkish, whole grain, multi wheat AND serve real butter on the side. I eat here occasionally at lunchtime and highly recommend the fish tacos. Just a great meeting place in the morning and a good way to start the day.

Hey why would you eat the buffet at a hotel when a quiet stroll up to MItchell Street delivers a better experience at a cheaper price?

I love this place an eat breakfast here every time I visit Darwin (2-3 times a year). So why do I continue;

1) the staff are always friendly and efficient
2) the coffee is great and they have chai latte which pleases my better half
3) the food is better than an average breakfast and one of the best in Darwin
4) if you are in a hurry you can be out of the place within 20-30 minutes (if you eat like me that is)

I had the Bacon and Egg sandwich most days, the muesli was also very nice and my partner had the Eggs Benedict which she loved

See you next August Ducks Nuts

Breakfast on Saturday at Ducks! It's been a while since coming here for breakfast since visiting about 2 years ago and ordering Eggs Benedict with ham and receiving bacon and when questioned was told " its all the same".... Still get a coffee here nearly Saturday though as i think its nice. I visited with friends who told me its their fav breakfast place which seems to be the same for a lot of people, it was very busy, we were lucky to get an inside table away from the very loud music. Menu offered What a Choice! I settled on the corn fritters with spicy salsa on the side. Quick service on coffee and food despite the number of people. We all ordered different options some with extras which was not a problem. Mine was a lovely change from my usual benny and I enjoyed it all. The only down would be being asked by 4 different staff members if everything was alright during our meal. Would go back again to try more of the breakfast menu.
