I love everything at this place, the building, the decor, the food & staff. It has a cozy ambience, friendly welcome & great service. The food was very well balanced with some hearby highlight. One of the best places to go for a brunch! See less

I read an article saying the cunning culinary was voted the number 1 place to eat in maitland. I can see why so many people would vote that way. The welcome was friendly. I didn't get to see the dining room too clearly iy was quite busy, but it looked comfortable and welcoming. We ate in the courtyard. It was clean and quiet. There's a basket of blankets and cushions to use if your chair isn't ideal. The staff seemed to be In a rush but it never seemed to be any trouble to ask for anything we needed. Service was fast and food was good. I had the egg and bacon roll. I've always been of thr opinion that it's hard to mess up an egg and bacon roll, the ingredients are right there in the name. But I never expected it to be so substantially improved on. My wife had fish tacos and flat chips (really, just steak cut fries) which she said was pretty good...that's high praise when jist about everything else is "ok" So would I have voted it number 1? Probably not...my choices are flavoured by nostalgia. But it would definitely be top 3. And we'll be back See less

Absolutely spot on. Cozy setting, great service, great wait time. Ordered a bacon and egg roll. The roll was so soft that I could cleanly cut through it with a butter knife! Fantastic combination of flavours, and almost completely mess-free. Definitely will be coming back See less

Tried this place for the first time today. It's a quirky little venue. Ordered peppermint tea and the Ultimate Breakie Roll. Very nice tea and hands down the best breakfast roll I've EVER had. Staff are friendly, but incredibly softly spoken. Made it difficult to communicate when they were busy. I'll definitely be coming back! See less

The food and coffee is always beautiful. The menu caters to many appetites and the cakes are fresh and very tasty.I have been a returning customer for a weekend coffee and cake. I appreciate the level of effort they have gone to for Covid safety. However, unfortunately I am deterred to come back by the way we were spoke to by staff. It wasn’t directly rude however they very much demonstrated they didn’t want our service nor did they have much intentions of demonstrating customer service. I know hospitality is hard, but it doesn’t hurt to smile. See less

I've been to this restaurant now, several times over a number of years and I have not once been disappointed! The food is always superb and delicious, with quite a good variety on the menu - both for meals and snacks. Coffee is excellent, too. I have always experienced quick, efficient service and the staff are always polite and friendly. During this Covid period, they have followed the social distancing and restrictions well, and I have felt completely safe there. On this last occasion, I even visited this restaurant just before entering hospital for an operation and felt confident that they were handling the situation correctly and carefully (which I could not say the same for many other restaurants, including big name family chains!) It is quite small, but comfortable, and you can also sit outside, if you choose. There is parking at the rear, which makes it very convenient. If you want some fantastic home - cooked food, I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant!!! See less

Fresh and homemade cakes made our morning coffee even more enjoyable. Very cozy and warm cafe with friendly staff. It has a cute little backyard and a carpark at the back. Also, there are fresh bunches of flowers for sale, right behind the entrance door. See less
