A very funky find in the laneways of Devonport - fast and friendly service and excellent value for money. They are more than happy to do takeaways as well. Thank you for a fantastic breakfast.

What a find. Quirky and great quick service. Tasty Bircher and tasty poached eggs. Coffee perfectly to my taste. Newspapers were also appreciated. My only suggestion. Close the door as it was a freezing morning.

We found this by accident and am so glad we did. Coffee was hot and quick to come. Breakfast was luxurious from Eggs Benidict with Tassie Salmon to African Bean bowls and the ever faithful Bircher Museli. Brilliant!

We visited for lunch without the kids. Was pretty busy and we were sat up the top around the corner where we wrongly assumed we would be forgotten. We were most definitely not forgotten. Super fast service. Quality food. Very impressed!

Staff are always friendly, joking around and happy to help. This is one of my favourite spots for a big vegetarian breakfast, including eggs, mushrooms, hash browns, toast and beans, and can't forget the spinach. So filling. Also good for lunch, they offer a vegetarian...More
