Still my top spot for breakfast. Faultless in every respect. The Duo with eggs florentine and French toast is a perennial winner.Friendly staff and a log fire!

My family and I had a great Sunday lunch here. It was our first time in 44 Stanley and we really enjoyed the vibe. The restaurant is very relaxed, with a good selection of dishes to suit out various tastes. Service was quite adequate, and the prices were very reasonable. All in all it was a very enjoyable lunch - we were back at 44 Stanley a few weeks later and nearly went back to Salvationcafe, but decided to try another restaurant for variety sake only; next time I think we will go back to Salvationcafe.

Went for Mother's Day lunch.the waitress very rude so as the supervisor , half way thru she asked if we could move to another table!!!!
This was my first experience at any restaurant asked a client to move to another table while busy.
No doubt the food is good so we keep going back but owner must do something about service.

A real hidden gem we discovered at 44 Stanley...perfect spot for a lazy lunch in the sun. Trendy artisan's market with a few interesting eateries - we'll definitely be back to explore the others...

The 5-Spice Calamari was easily the best I've ever tasted - succulent, soft inner and crispy outer, with an amazing Dipping Sauce and Asian Green Salad - definitely not to be missed! The Gourmet Burger was literally finger-licking good - lean beef, caramelized onion, jong belegen cheese, guacomole & bacon, topped with a sweet tomato relish and resting on fresh lettuce & tomato...a work of art.

The Carrot Pineapple Cake with cream cheese frosting and New York Cheesecake with berry coulis were both outstanding - moist, flavorful, delicious - so good we took some away for later :)
