I spent a good 4-5hours here one day finishing off an assignment, and staff were so lovely towards me taking up a table for a time period. I was offered table service, coffees were great, and BOB Bagel with salmon and avocado was fresh. Music is great also. Thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and always have in the past.

Really great service and food in a modest setting . Well priced, un pretencious but solid value for money. Basic setting, but superb coffee and food.

Went here instead of deluccas one Saturday. Was moderately busy ... but coffee and cakes were good. The sound reverberates a bit .. But it's ok 😀

Nice little coffee shop, with a good range of cabinet food and food from a menu. The coffee is very nice and the food is also very nice. A good range of vegetarian options.

Good coffee, good food choices and reasonable prices. Staff were friendly and there was a good amount of seating available, parking wasn't so good

Go to cafe almost every week here. Staff know what we get each week and makes you feel really special. They make a good long black. The atmosphere is good, right in central cbd. Been there for lunch and breakfasts and food is nice.
