What an energy filled, fun spot for lunch! Meals were delicious. Food was fresh. Bit of a queue and service was slow but a great trainee cafe.

This café is a training place for indigenous students studying in the hospitality industry. Their enthusiasm for their work, their customer service and the quality of product is terrific and a reflection on their training and their personal commitment to the work.

It is quite an inspiration to see aboriginal people running such and efficient and friendly cafe. The food is excellent, good value and the service first class. Greta for a quick and delicious snack. Coffee is good too.
