“Such a hip-looking place, such awful food”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The memory of the awful salad I had here still lingers. Have they never heard of rockette or baby spinach leaves? Or any lettuce other than the old-fashioned iceberg which you can leave mouldering away in the bottom of the fridge for aeons? And what about a vinaigrette with a bit of bite? I may be alone here, but I do like a salad with a bit of flavour. You can get a good innovative salad just up the road in Blackheath, in the old movie theatre area - why don't the good folks at Pomegranate scoot up there and take a look? My husband was equally under-impressed with his dish, though I will say it was not as memorably awful as mine. Just bland.

My wife eggs benedict with asparagus and I had the big breakky - both were excellent. Coffee was fantastic.

“Cupcakes and a cuppa”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

This is a cute friendly little coffee shop with very nice tea and a selection of beautiful iced cupcakes. I had one with rhubarb that was delicious. The staff are young and very pleasant. You order and pay at the counter before sitting down. It's closed for the next 2 or 3 weeks while the owners are on holidays.

“yummie tea!”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

the tea they have is T2, which is a very good tea brand in Australia. The ambience is very nice and the staff is friendly, however sometimes a bit ununderstandable because they dont speak very loud.
