The place looks good, trendy and clean. The place also has a nice vibe. I have been here twice and my experience has been consistent.

Great central spot to have a meal or a snack or meet your friends or family. Pull out your laptop and work whilst having a cuppa. Staff always willing to assist as it can get crazy busy.

Love this coffee shop. Have been going there for years. Lovely friendly staff. Great coffee and the pancakes are amazing. They have the best salad dressing, which they also do sell for you to enjoy at home. Their new venue is great. They have added to their menu and are doing pizza too now. Excellent place to refuel!

Great tasting coffees and uniquely made dishes make for a different experience from the franchise stores. Abundance of health salads should be popular amongst the gym goers from the nearby gym. Good service as well.

The new venue is trendy with a nice vibe allowing one to sit indoors or outside. It is sure to attract a lot of new visitors. The menu has been upgraded and now allows for supper as well. We all had pizzas which were very nice followed by pudding which was also good. This is not haute cuisine, it is... More

Thanks Mark. Hope Amamshova went well! Yes, our service staff are still in training but we hope to get them 100% shortly! Apart from having to employ 25 new staff who had to start immediately, all new and old staff are going through training and testing on the new menus, some getting there quicker than others. Its tough but we... More

The new venue is stunning.However the food described on the menu did not really arrive on the plate. Service was slow and staff knowledge of the menu was no existant.
