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

Always good for a meal, coffee or snack. Usual Alice Springs prices. Thank you to the council for the free wi fi. I have eaten here a number of times and always good value.

Fast efficient and excellent coffee was recommended by staff at hotel. Very few there at my time,rather cavernous room but would be great and buzzy when full.

A great place to hang out and watch the passers by. Excellent coffee, cake or small nibbles. Also substantial meals are available. Very relaxing, good staff.

I like it. Really nice hot drinks. Nice for the family but the service isn't the best. 4 out of five.

I needed lunch so I ordered the Indian tandoori chicken sandwich which I have to admit: it was good and savory. It was warm and a bit humid but it was overall nice to eat outside except for those darn flies. The sandwich was a little slow to arrive. The table was a bit sticky- nothing will slide off.
