Great range of cabinet food options, or quick options off the menu. Really good friendly service. Great coffee to complement and range of healthy drink options.

Sunny sidewalk breakfast Equal to the best of Wellington and Melbourne. The second long black was as good as the first. Heading back there tomorrow.
