Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Went there for lunch today (Friday) on the recommendation of a colleague. Not really sure why she recommended it. We ordered individual serves - didn't realise 'individual' serves referred to the single item on the plate rather than a serving size adequate for an individual. I had the tuna croquettes and the stuffed mushrooms (2 menu items) which turned out to be one croquette (approx. $5 for a croquette that was 5cm long x 2cm diameter) and one stuffed mushroom (approx. $4 for a mushroom that was 4cm in diameter). Overpriced and unfortunately the taste didn't make up for the meager serving. The croquette was very salty and the mushroom (stuffed with a bit of bacon, quinoa and can't remember what else) was tasteless. One of my colleagues had the crumbed sardines (with pesto) and she wasn't impressed by the flavour of the 2 sardines (approx. $7). The grilled asparagus was a couple of spears for approx. $5. My other colleague also had the stuffed mushroom and the toast with avocado and tomato (this actually looked a reasonable serving size for the price charged). The coffee was average. Apparently they have only been open for 1 month, so possibly they are still working out the menu. I've since looked up reviews by others and there are a few reviews that rave about how great the food is... May be we caught them on an off day although there were only 5 other people in the cafe for the peak lunch hour... and 3 of those 5 were waitstaff...
