Decent, hot coffee. Large-sized breakfast servings. I ordered a vegetarian breakfast and you could tell the veg food is cooked separately to the meat. The manager kept a close eye on the tables. Thanks for the great service and quality food!

This place is great for people who love potato but also a great place for breakfast in general. The prices are reasonable and they have a variety of options.

Randomly walked into this small Irish/ Australian Café, and couldn't be happier. I had smocked salmon eggs Benedict and my partner had that amazing Irish Fry. We also had Banana & Berry Smoothies. Very impressed, everything was perfect. Highly recommend and will be back.

A close friend and I ate lunch here recently. I had the potato nachos and they were great. The potato was uniformly fried and topped with guacamole, spicy beans, mozzarella and sour cream. A lovely lunch dish! The mango smoothies however were a complete disappointment....More

Trying to be a good vegan & this place does the job. Meal and smoothie were both amazing. Can be a busy spot at peak times.

An Italian espresso machine operated by a real Italian means outstanding coffe to get you started in the morning. Freshly pressed fruit and vegetables juices. Interesting gluten free alternatives to bread done with potatoes. We loved it!!

Had the Irish breakfast, was ok, the sausage tasted a bit off. Tried to get the waitress attention twice but she ignored me. Don't know if I'll be back.
