Wow, the bacon was amazing, I don't know how it was cooked, but smokey and delicious and crunchy enough for my liking. The potato fritter was superb, the eggs done to perfection, and the presentation was fabulous. And our waitress was friendly, helpful, and altogether lovely to us. I'll be back, next time I'm in Sydney.

Had the crown fritter, very tasty and gluten free, the chive sour cream made it. He had the planet breakfast, mushroom were great. Coffee, tea and service also amazing

This is a favourite catch up cafe for an old friend and I. We meet here for afternoon tea or light lunch quite regularly, most recently on Thursday this week. The food is good quality cafe food for a reasonable price and coffee is good. I've never been to the upstairs tables but the downstairs area is light and airy... More

The good was the food, generous amounts, good variety. The disappointing were : (1) the incredibly slow service - we were seated upstairs, and just to have someone take your order felt like a minor miracle, then the wait ... and the wait for the coffees and then the food to arrive. A table of two next to us walked... More

If you only come here for a coffee, I am afraid this is my the best place for you. I had coffee here many times and never thought it was good. It's a shame because the breakfasts and brunches are really good with generous portions, the staff are always very nice and the cafe itself it's lovely.

Nice brekky,healthy choices,generous portions. Not everyone makes good coffees though. Had backpackers barista and the coffee was awful. The guy with a bierd makes incredible coffee. Had 2 coffees once when he was around. Love the food and good atmosphere.

A bit pricey, but the food is exquisite. There are vegan options and vegetarian options and everything on the menu is delicious and very tasty. The service is attentive and the location is easy, breezy. Grab a coffee. They make a good brew, and anything with chocolate, like a hot chocolate or a mocha is presented with decadent, rich chocolate... More

Somewhere we will try again when not so busy for Sat. brunch/lunch crush as had such good revues. Perhaps with the wild variance of reviews they don't cope when slammed or have different staff on the weekend etc. Who knows, but on a Saturday at lunch time for a group of regular breakfast friends it didn't live up to expectations....

This is a cosy cafe with a cheerful outlook onto an iconic Newtown street. The menu caters for meat-lovers, vegetarians and vegans alike and the vegan wrap has gone to the top of my list of favourites. The service is speedy and friendly.
