Sadly this once great coffee spot is off my list of places to go for a good brew. Was there on the weekend with my partner. Arrived and wanted to sit out site, got the table we wanted cleared but the waitress arrived with our coffee having forgot to clean the food scraps and gunk off the table from the last diners.

I had to ask her to notice and then she cleaned it.

The coffee was a disaster - burnt and scalding hot, I am a coffee fan but this was one that I left after only one sip.

One the last 3 visits the place was fab, the coffee great, good magazines to read (these too have sadly diminished to a load of outdated publications).

Seems there are new owners and the spark has gone.

Won't be back here again as we searched around and found another fab cafe...

The coffee and hot choc. just divine.

We had eggs for breakfast for $8.00, generous potions, mine had 3 eggs on nice wholemeal toast, coffee also good.

a good place for a coffee and a read of the paper. Nice lunch, shame they don't open for dinner as I am sure it would be good too.

Sent the coffee back, and asked for a double shot but it came back pretty much the same- weak and milky. Atmosphere is cool, and the food is nice. Maybe it was just one bad coffee, so will give it another try.
