Amazing place! We are so glad we came to visit before heading off to the airport. It’s a great time buffer if your either heading to the airport or waiting to check into accomodation as it’s fairly close to the airport, train stations and bus stops. Will 100% return. Great service also, very helpful staff. Try the cakes!

Lovely venue amongst historic area of Parramatta with nice food choices at a good price. Coffee needs to be improved, another brand of beans would be more acceptable as current coffee is weak and not flavoursome. Otherwise we had a lovely lunch and will return.

The location and setting are wonderful, especially with a toddler in the party. He was able to run about without disturbing other diners. The food was fresh, well-presented and delicious. The only feedback is that service is slow and you wouldn't go there if you're in a rush. We will return!
