Went for breakfast to this normally reliable café. It wasn't at all busy, but we were told it would be a 20 minute wait for our coffees. It turned out to be 25 minutes. The poached eggs were overcooked and solid, the whole breakfast very ordinary. There didn't seem to be enough staff on, and some of them seemed inexperienced. A pity, but we won't return.

Visited twice, once for lunch and the second time for breakfast. Mussels for lunch were super.

Also had breakfast here a couple of days later. Almost perfect except the poached eggs yolks went too firm as the waitress forgot to bring cutlery with the plates - so nearly five stars perfect! Still enjoyed everything.

the service and food at this place is shocking. Ordered simple bacon and 2 poached eggs. 30 minutes later served cold food and very over cooked eggs. Toast with no butter.
We left, was reasonably busy but the 2 staff that dealt with us had no idea, really really bad, we walked along and had the most wonderful food at a place not too far from this.

Love to go here. Fab views from their seating area . They’ve a quirky old fridge full of interesting reading material. Like a coffee there or a beer. Wild bucks only $5 a large handle. Why go anywhere else?
