My family and I were ignored by 4 different staff members as we stood at the counter waiting to place an order. Eventually someone asked u " do youse have a table yet?" one had just been vacated so we sat there and then had to re-queue for another 5 minutes behind 2 other patrons who were also frustrated at the lack of service. When the person at the front of the queue was finally served they were told there would be at least a 20 minute wait for food. At that point we were already close to 25 minutes in there with no service. We left. Don' t bother with this place - they really don't seem to care. Typical of Bulimba.

Love the coffee here, like the french theme, love the decor, service matches the french theme, set in West End in a lovely sheltered area. Busy during the day with business people getting takeaway and on the weekend the cyclist seem to drop in for a gateau and coffee. Worth a look! If you are attempting the carb free lifestyle, stay clear!

We walked in at 1050 and found breakfast menus on every table and were looking forward to a nice late breakfast. When we decided what we wanted, we went to the cashier only to be told that breakfast finishes at 1100am. The time was 1102am. The cashier snatched the menu from us and was not friendly at all. As a result , we walked out and will never go there again. The restaurant itself looked nice, such a shame about the poor poor service.

Brisbane is very well served for great coffee shops along the river bikepaths. My favourites are The Corner Store in Toowong, the Little Larder in New Farm and Poppy's in Little Stanley St, Southbank. There is usually a crowd of cyclists at each of these.

However there is a new kid on the block which hasn't been discovered by the lycra set yet - French Twist in the new apartment buildings at Newstead. This felt like eating in a fine home with it's comfortable lounge chairs, fine china, even rolled up rugs for a cool winter morning. The coffee was excellent and the breakfast menu included French brioche with poached spiced pears drizzled with hot chocolate and served with ice cream - so decadent, so delicious! Combine this with smooth service and views of the widest section of the Brisbane river and you have a great place to spend a relaxing hour or two. Get there before the rest of us cyclists discover it.
