Situated in the rather touristy waterfront Ferry Building, we both enjoyed the Fish n chips. The best part was the "Upside Down" cake for dessert. Never had that before and it was fun. It wasn't crowded when we were there - so not noisy. Service...More

Very good food and service. The basil omlette was excellent and the service was great. We got there at 9:00 AM on a Sunday morning so no wait. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for breakfast.
