I've been visiting this cafe for years and it never disappoints. Fantastic generous breakfasts and great fresh juices. sometimes ned to wait a short while for a table but never too long. affordable prices also.

Great little location. They offer very good food for small money. The portions are very big. Everybody is very friendly.

Keep coming back to this cafe! Great meal size for a good price. Everything is well seasoned. Brekkie burrito, steak sandwich, French toast and salads are huge and yum!

Ran into this little restaurant for a veg meal while the family went next door.

The backpacker hired to greet and take my order could not even muster a little smile. Guess the dreary atmosphere was getting her down?

The bathroom was grimy and filthy! Always an indication as to the cleanliness of the spot. Every chair and the table were sticky and gross.

I ordered a burrito, which did not take long to arrive (was the only patron at 5pm). The burrito, however, was a sloppy mess. Tasted pretty good, but not much to it... lots of refried beans and cheese.

Ordered chai tea which was delicious but the tea pot leaked. Staff tells me they all leak. Was left to clean that up myself.

I think the positive reviews for this place do a disservice to those of us who are using TA to choose a great find.

Give this place a pass until they scrub it down and make a little effort.
