No food till 3pm dissppointing Helen Linden
The vegan burger came with non vegan aioli, was glad I asked the waitress when she walked by if it was vegan, she came back saying it wasn't and offered to trade it for something else. The burger patty seemed raw inside,but maybe it was supposed to be that way. The burger itself was dry. My husband enjoyed his food and the atmosphere was nice. But it's important not to serve milk in a specified milk free dish. The menu noted it was vegan, but had an asterisk near gluten free, which indicated it could be made gluten free but was already vegan. Katy Nissen
This place is a great spot for lunch or dinner. Been about 15 times and only ever ordered one thing and it has never let me down. Their chicken parmigiana is definitely the best parmi in Australia. Would 100% recommend this place. Taj Pinker
Had a wonderful time for a Saturday lunch watching the football outside with our dog. The service was fantastic, dog water bowl brought out on arrival, tables kept clear of glasses and the food was delicious and timely. Just a great vibe with great service. Heather Branchi
