YUM! I had the bircher muesli - absolutely delicious. Chunks of honey laden honeycomb, berries, and edible flowers on a delicious bed of yoghurt and muesli. The coffee was good too. Go!

We really enjoyed our late lunch here one afternoon. The staff were good, we all ended up ordering the same things with was the chicken burger, and we all enjoyed it. We stayed for a lot longer to chat, but the staff were happy to bring more water etc until we were ready to leave, which was nice.

My husband and I visited today for a lovely breakfast. I ordered the green salad and added goats cheese, it was beautiful! Loved the added touch of flavour from the hazelnuts. Healthy, colourful and full of flavour!

Food well presented and cooked well but nothing that wowed. I love a good breakfast and managed to try a few on my short stay in GF. Elk espresso was rated quite highly across a wide range of review sites so we made sure we stopped on our last day. We had the gnocchi, croissant, pudding and panda cotta. Everything... More

Beautifully presented food, very busy so expect to wait for a seat especially on the weekends. The dishes were all generally good and decent in size but the black pudding was very average and small in portion.

Had the pleasure of dining here for brunch with my partner one Sunday morning. This place has a relaxed vibe, was very busy yet such efficient service. Delighted in eating the; Warm Chicken Salad. (Delicious). A beautiful gem on the Gold Coast.

Service was great. The dude taking names to get you a table has a very good system in place. We didn't have to wait long. They even found us space with a pram. Service was fast and friendly. Coffee and food was delicious.
