Menu was very breakfast orientated with a few yummy alternatives. We stopped for lunch and shared the chicken breast burger which was excellent. Coffee was also very good.

What a pleasure. Cosy, unmatching furniture. Lots of wood and cute decor. Very nice, simple well cooked fresh food. Fine cup of tea served properly. A real treat in a time of plastic franchises.

Good coffee and great service. I called before I pick up my orders and it’s always great every time I visit. I enjoy going here especially the Bacon and Egg Roll and the Mocha.

Only recently heard of this little cafe tucked away next to a Thornleigh station. What a gem of a place it is! Decked out with quirky retro and antique furnitures and mismatched decor, the coffee is excellent and the food servings are generous! Will definitely...More

There are a few parking spaces right outside but you never have to wait very long for somebody to move
