We went for a special birthday lunch this week and had a really great time and the food was excellent. I had the warmed olives for a start followed by the fish of the day which was in a broth with the potatoes and quite delicious. The other diners had the classical usual kedgeree which is always dependable. The bubbles and Pegasys Bay riesling were all good as well. Dessert was a coffee shot and liquor pored onto some ice- cream with a strong coffee taste .
Our favorite lunch destination.
Had breakfast here recently before work. I had the muesli with yoghurt and poached fejoia, my Dad the pancakes. The pancakes looked quite boring but he enjoyed them. The muesli was divine. Full of nuts and grains and the fejoais were poached to perfection. I always get eggs or pancakes or something cooked for breakfast when I eat out so I was very happy with my choice. My Dad was happy with his juice and coffee, my english breakfast tea pot was enormous. Came to an even $40. Really nice place to eat, very friendly staff, very attentive. New favorite spot!!
The kedgiree here keeps getting better. Shame they're closed now on a Sunday, I'll have to get my kedgiree fix on a Saturday instead. The counter food is nice too, lovely cakes and always something different. The service can be a bit abrubt at times, but the waiting staff are always quick to get coffees which is great to see in a cafe
I have been several times and went again last week. The Fish of the Day was Terakhi with skin on and very tasty but small portions as others have noted. My partner had the staple of the Kedgeree
which she enjoyed as usual. The only real blip was that the wait person forgot my coffee order so I had to go with-out which was a little frustrating. Is it my imagination- or are the mains becoming gradually smaller. ? At $25 a time I feel that they should be more generous.
Another great coffee and muffin experience. 7 of us for a morning tea muffin and coffee. Staff were super friendly and organised a large table for us. It was quite busy and lots of people eating brekkie. Brekkie looks great here. Anyway we had the date scones and cheese scones and lots of coffees. Yummo, best cheese muffins in town. Anyway .... blah blah blah, great place for coffee and cheese scones, tell your friends. They also give you lots of water on arrival while you wait for your meals/coffees and you dont have to wait too long. Lots od attentive staff.
The food here is divine! Almost everything is organic and hella tasty. Don't let the small portions deter you; the meals are filling and the menu ever changing. As a newly returned customer, I was a bit sad to see my last purchase no longer on the menu but my next meal was just as mouth-watering. It’s a good way to help you mix it up a little. However, I must agree with some of the past reviews in terms of the service. Staff, are a little on the pretentious side (Dr. Martin-wearers of the sort as one reviewer put it), ironically rich considering these folk are probably on minimum wage and customers are paying doubly their hour rate, on a meal/entree (no one blames you Nikau, it's a common theme throughout Wgtn cafe's). All in all, it's a neat little cafe`, especially in the summer while sippin' on a vodka/champy bubbles with raspberries! YUM.
