They have a really good brista and I've had a delicious coffee from here every single time I've been. The milk is smooth and the coffee rich and not burned. All so very important to me. The food is average but a bit pricy for what it really is. Treat yourself to a pick me up coffee for sure from... More

Shared a brunch at this café with my wife on a Sunday morning. It has a warm pleasant atmosphere. Staff are welcoming. There is a good range of selection on the menu, although the food selection in the cabinet was limited, possibly because it was a weekend. The Rocket coffee was very good and I enjoyed my flat white. My... More

Quaint little cafe in St Andrews which is well worth a visit. Clean, good food, friendly staff, nice coffee! High chair available but would be even better if toy box for the children.

This is a great place to eat with very upscale food. Had the BLAT and it was great! Had the date crumble thingy for desert and it was really good. I liken this to a fresh California style restaurant, if that helps you any. It is a local place and not a chain with great service.

We tried out this cafe for the first time after purchasing vouchers for 2 x cakes/slices and 2 x coffees. The cakes were very nice - we had an orange syrup cake and a hummingbird cake. Both were moist and flavoursome and were topped with cream cheese icing. Both came with a side of either whipped cream or yoghurt. Our... More

Went here today for lunch with some workmates. Unlike what others have said, it was very quiet and when we went in we were the only people. Others came in though. They have a nice looking menu with good selection of lunch and all day breakfast options as well as cabinet food. I had the C.L.A.T (chicken, lettuce, avocado and... More

Popped in for an unpropitious coffee and cake with the mrs. I had a tea and chocolate brownie she had a coffee and a savory muffin. Muffin was very good. Girl at the counter was very friendly. Place looked very nice and overall very happy. Will be back again.

We were rather disappointed at the changes made since our last visit. Mushrooms in creamy sauce were swimming in a tasteless watery muck. Front man lovely but surly appearance of several other members was not good. A change of ownership maybe.

This is a small cafe, nearly always busy and so noisy, but I don;t find it uncomfortably so. Just a nice happy buzz... It's easy to find a park because it is out of town, and well worth a little extra driving. Intersting food, good variety and consistently high quality. Open for dinner (I think) 3 nights and same comments... More

I find these palces very noisy because of the coffee machines. Hard to have a conversation without shouting.
