This is great cafe.

Food is as you would expect in this competitive area. Awesome.

But it’s the friendly comfortable service that makes it. Don’t confuse this with being anything short of awesome. Others should take note.

Checking out cafes throughout the area and Chalkboard is already a favourite! The breakfast was divine and lunch time the next day whilst not as mind blowing, was still fantastic and generous. Thank you so much for the excellent service and speedy meal prep. The staff are training up nicely and though rusty around the edges, I’m sure they’ll be up to snuff up in no time!

Saturday lunch at the chalkboard and the place is full. This is a small cafe with the biggest serves of food I have ever seen. A good deal of the food items are served on platters. Before receiving the menu, looking around, I thought everyone was sharing food and it came out on platters but apparently not. Service was friendly but a little distracted and it took sometime to order. Perhaps they had had a really big morning.the menu is huge. Burgers, omlettes ( at least 10) and pasta are the features here. Food arrives piled high or on the afore mentioned platters. Sitting at a small table with a platter of food in front of you is quite daunting. The odd thing is the mixture of flavours. Gyozas with bosciola sauce or lamb shank stew really tastes as strange as it sounds. We ordered a haloumi beetroot salad with quinoa, iceberg lettuce and greens. This arrived on a 30cm long platter. Its fresh and crunchy but lacks the tang of olive oil or nice vinegar. Id rather quality over quantity. But thats me. We ordered a gyoza with chicken and spinach and these came cooked like they were ravioli in a creamy pasta sauce on a large square platter. The gyoza were very nice but they were filled with crunchy greens and shitakes and fought the creamy italian sauce in flavour. Prices are good. And its a friendly place if you are looking for a burger or bowl of pasta you are in luck. There are some confusing flavours combinations here and too much food waste in the huge serves for me here.

Trip advisor didn’t let me down. I was looking for an exceptional coffee and a relax with the paper for a short time. I was wonderfully welcomed and provided with a particularly high standard cappuccino and brownie. Fabulous!

Coffee is very nice! The food is very good as well. Extensive menu with nice choices. We were there with a group of 4 for brunch on the weekend. Got the last table as it is pretty popular. Service is nice and friendly.
