I live locally and normally refrain from negative reviews but this place continues to disappoint. The female owner is downright rude. Hint...if you don’t like serving people don’t work in hospitality...just take a back seat and employ friendly people. It’s the only cafe in Thirroul...More

Cucina produced tasty food with variety. Great breakfast menu, wonderful salads for lunch, friendly staff. The ambient can be noisy inside when full.

Came here for the salads after trying at a friends house, very delicious. Didn't have the coffee after reading the reviews. Interesting to note that the owner hasn't left a response for any comments, surely they must read them.

Good almond croissant. Service is not attentive enough. Also a little bit pricey. $11 for 2 croissants!

This place was out of the wind so we hid inside. But that was the only respite the atmosphere was cold ! Maybe a bad day but staff were on edge, abrupt any way I had friends. The cabinet was bright and full so I...More
