“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Unfortunately the last time I visited there was an awful smell lingering but eating outside it didn't bother us and I'm sure they have addressed this by now. The food was extremely good and the table service was fantastic and delivered with a smile. An elderly lady couldn't make up here mind which table to sit at and tried several and this didn't upset the staff which was lovely to see. Great outdoor setting with good view and varied menu, will definitely be back.

“Quick and tasty”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Popped in with the family for a quick Sunday lunch, service was crisp and servings prompt and tasty. Pricing was pitched just right.

“Memories or lack of them”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Arrived here at 11.30am Tuesday morning. Sat outside ordered coffee and a juice and all seemed to be progressing nicely.
Server took our order, avocado on toast for me and lentil and bacon soup for her, and sat back and enjoyed the temp and the goings on down Tedder St while we waited for our lunch. After about 20 minutes we saw others around us getting meals that they had ordered after us and were much more complicated to prepare. The server suddenly popped in and said he had forgotten to place our order and what did we want again. So we ordered again and got our food in 10-15 minutes.
Bizarre thing was it wasn't mentioned again and no apology when food was delivered.
Both dishes were OK and reasonable value. Meal cost was $19.80

“Healthy, YUMMY Breakfast!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

Outdoor patio in a quiet section of Tedder. Service was excellent, prompt and attentive. I had Porridge with carmelized, yes carmelized(!), bananas and a shot of Maple syrup, tasted like Bananas Foster, probably the best oatmeal I've ever had. Mango smoothy with soymilk, late' all had a great flavor. Salmon with cream cheese and bagel, complete with thin red onions and capers also was out of this world. Would return again.
