    Such a nice open space to relax and enjoy your food. The staff were all very friendly and service was fast. It didn’t take long for our food to come out and it was of great quality and taste. My husband had the eggs Benedict and thought it was a little “strange” for his liking and he said he wouldn’t get that again. I ordered the breakfast burger and it was light and tasty. I thought it was the perfect meal for lunch time. I’m not sure about the Swiss cheese though in the kids toastie - it’s not what kids are used to. Just stick to tasty cheese please. They will love it. We enjoyed our meal and look forward to returning soon. Coffee was also great. Thank you

    Wonderful to sit out on the deck with family from interstate. The service and staff were great, just wish they had worn their masks properly. May seem unfair customers are maskless, but really important for the staff’s protection.

    Just a standard cafe with average food. Would really like to see the menu change or some more inventive specials other than soup and two types of omelettes that were basically fridge clearers. It’s not bad but definitely not one I’d recommend to people.

    I liked the overall experience but it’s so noisy now and the coffee wasn’t fabulous - a little bitter , but food was excellent - it’s a great place I just think they need to soften the noise and maybe Dona survey on their coffee.

    The Deck is a great venue and having the outside space is a great asset. Unfortunately the food lacks a bit of love. More attention needs to be spent on the preparation and presentation of it.

    We were originally seated inside. The acoustics are terrible, very noisy we could hardly hear each other. We requested to be moved outside which they accommodated despite having to rearrange a few tables for us which was much better. The staff were friendly and efficient and apologised for the long wait for our meals. The food was good.

    We had breakfast at the Deck, the choice of items is good - it varies over the time. We chose to sit outside in the covered area - the noise inside is quite loud. Outside is heated which was great considering Melbourne elected to change the season. I think it is good value, the staff are attentive.
