“Great coffee and comfy surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

I am bit of a coffee snob, but I can definitely recommend the coffee here, in fact we were in Dunedin for 3 days and visited 4 times. The place is relaxed and warm, the coffee excellent, and service very good.

“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We dined here recently with 4 other couples on a Saturday at lunchtime. The menu looked interesting so we didn't have any problems choosing a meal. All the meals looked appetising as they were delivered to the table and my salmon salad was delicious. Some of the men ordered the kidneys on ciabatta and all said they loved it. Service was friendly and a waiter even apologised to us for the wait (although it didn't seem lengthy). We thought it was value for money and all agreed they would return. A nice find!

“Family friendly with tasty generous portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

We dropped in here for lunch and as a visitor to Dunedin I had to try their Cheese rolls and I wasn't disappointed. Others in the family enjoyed delicious meals also and all of generous portions. Very nice!

“A breakfast surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

If you are really looking for something different for breakfast then try here. We visited one Monday morning and had the breakfast of our trip. A most interesting and imaginative fusion menu, good strong coffee and a price that you can afford We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast - thank you

“Lively food, Great service. ?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely brunch of eggs benedict with the best hash browns ever! My daughter had the buttermilk pancakes which she said were amazing. Coffee was good but could have been hotter. Service was very friendly and efficient. I will definitely be back though.
