Unfortunately we didn't have a good experience here. It started with a very slow order taking staff, who struggled to add $10 + $10.50 with a calculator. This was a bit funny. Then the breakfast came - fruit toast with butter. What we got was butter with fruit toast. In addition, the quality of the bread was equal to the... More

Lots to choose for breakfast, brunch or lunch stop. Barrista coffee served in mug size, choice of breads, salad quiche croissants. We sat outside under umbrella shade, friendly service

First place open we came across on a bank holiday. The coffee, milkshake and pancakes where good, the sandwiches ok though not great. I'll give it a 4 rating because the staff was very friendly and they made the effort to open where most other places were closed.

We were exploring the heart of Alice springs early one morning and decided to sit down for a coffee. the experience of the coffee persuaded us to go on to breakfast, smoothies and more coffee. A funky little spot that could hold its own against the best of Sydney and Melbourne

Been here a few times as it's often the only place open on Todd Street for food! The food's okay, definitely nothing wrong with it, but it's just not that special for the price. The bread is just cheap white bread and all the dishes need a little salt, pepper and tomato sauce. Definitely not a bad place to go,... More
