I have relatively mixed feelings about this place. Perhaps it was the fact I was in my gym gear and had a naked face (no make-up) wasn’t the best presentable way to walk in to a classy café/bar setting. Hence their service was not ideally to standard to some who have had much better of a positive experience. Got ignored for a bit when I entered, I guess they were probably under staff as the place was crowded but nevertheless I went in and got myself a table. A little bit disappointed with one waitress who half-heartily served me. I had to ask for the menu and table water where as other customers received it without asking and got greeted straight away.
The general atmosphere of the café/bar is quite groovy/mellow due to its light upbeat music and the dim yellow lights. Looking at the menu for cost of breakfast on average it’s about $14-$16 if you want a decent fulfilling meal, lunch about $20-$28 and beverages about $6.50 or more if you want some wine. Thus it did pinched my wallet just a little bit. I’ve ordered myself one freshly squeezed orange and ruby grapefruit juice and the irresistible ricotta and vanilla bean pancake (felt like something sweet for breakkie). The texture of the pancake was beautiful – super fluffy and light, soaked with sweet, sweet vanilla and maple syrup. The ricotta definitely helped with balancing the sweetness out when it was too much and the nuts provided the little crunchy texture. Honesly I’d say it is one of the better-end of pancakes I’ve had.

Overall it was alright, I would have preferably enjoyed my breakfast a little bit more if I felt like I was in place. Perhaps next time I’ll wear something much more decent and smart to see the difference in terms of its services.
