    Unbelievably overpriced kids meals. 10.50 for a tiny pancake with one scoop of ice cream. Worth no more than $3. Had to talk to 4 wait staff to get my hot chocolate. I had one wait staff offer me 5 different meals. He just aimlessly walked around with food, happy to offload to anyone. The food was ok but it felt like extortion. And they charge a weekend surcharge. Isn't that when you receive most business. Yikes.

    Was so expensive for what it was. Eggs served on dry toast with three small slivers of bacon. No real love in the preparation and about what I would expect to make at home for myself. Seven dollars for a latte was also ridiculous.

    I rarely (if ever) have the inclination to leave a review so you can appreciate my dismay that leads to me being bothered this time.... Used to attend this Cafe very regularly. Not sure if new owners have taken over in the last few years but: - the food was sloppy at best - the coffee tasted like tepid dish water - service was really poor (no one seemed to know what was going on and it was very slow and piece-meal). On a positive note the staff was NOT rude however. - The portions of a couple of the dishes were very small but really quite expensive which is even more remarkable when they make you feel coerced into using the online "Mr Yum" platform to order which adds additionally to the cost!!!!

    The way the pancake tasted felt like something that came out of packet. Didn't taste fresh. Even home made pancakes can taste better. Scrambled egg was cold and not fulfilling and even though I understand prices has gone up I felt it was cheap and definitely not value for money. The take away toasted ham,cheese and tomato was way better then the food and better value. One thing I can say is that glover station always had coffee even though I didn't get that day as I use to frequently buy coffee when my child went to child care near

    Terrible service, meals didn’t arrive, coffees didn’t arrive. Was told the printer was broken but no one bothered to come and check our order until I got up and asked them. There was no manager overseeing young staff who didn’t really care that much. Not there fault.

    The food was great, but as we were in mid morning and tables were empty, it was a bit noisy as the sounds were bouncing off the hard surfaces.

    Food was pretty good and the venue is beautiful and unique, however the service was relatively slow and the online ordering menu prices were all out of whack with what was displayed on the physical menu and also showed different prices when you went to checkout (not just equivalent to the surcharge). So fine to have online ordering but this should not equal less attentive staff, it was hard to flag anyone down for questions/ cutlery!

    I have been to this cafe a number of times, both in pre-Covid times and amidst. When I went for brekky on the weekend, I was extremely surprised at the price, it cost me $35 for a coffee and avocado smash! I realise that there is a 15% surcharge on weekends but this borders on preposterous. I have always been someone who definitely goes out of my way to support my local businesses, especially amidst the lockdowns but I think this is a business that is definitely not struggling and I suggest they need to re-think how they're valuing their local customers. I will not go back to this cafe.

    Not sure why we were able to make a booking when the restaurant is closed. I’m just glad it was a booking with my mum and not someone else, which would have been extremely embarrassing. Probably won’t return after this experience.

    Food is amazing as always, really don’t like the outside table phone ordering. No service apart from staff bringing your food and our food came way before our coffees. When asked how long our double espresso will be was just told ‘we’re busym’ Such a pity for the price and no actual service I probably won’t go back
