    I enjoyed their spin on breakfast sandwiches. Their traditional breakfast platters are good too. Be sure to add the Maple Bacon to your order ad a nice side.

    Cool little aussie spot with excellent breakfast, brunch, and coffee. Specials are always killing it and the espresso is flowing. A true gem. Plus, it's byob!

    Amazing! Might be slow service just because it’s so busy but other than that it was delicious. The sweet potatoes are nothing like I’ve had before. Eggs of any sort is delicious. Friendly staff

    Loved the food but not for people who like a lot of space between themselves and other diners. Can get a bit noisy.

    Curious about Australian coffees? Ants Pants Café in Graduate Hospital is a great place to be indoctrinated into flat whites and long blacks—along with iced coffees made from espresso ice cream.

    order coffee with tim tams. bite off opposite corners of the tim tam and suck coffee through until it feels slightly soft. eat immediately. try not to sound like Sally in the diner scene.

    The space inside is a little crowded; try to get a table on the back patio if the weather allows! Great, inexpensive food.

    Brunch line can get a bit long on weekends but the food (and Aussie coffee drinks) are worth the wait.

    Best breakfast around. Try the house specialty...creme brûlée French toast! Yumm. They also often have french toast specials to die for. Great staff, awesome food, perfect local place!

    When it comes to brunch, G-Ho residents know that this tiny Australia-inspired eatery is the ant’s pants. Try the bacon stacks (bread layered with bacon, tomato, arugula, a fried egg and cheese). Read more

    Breakfast was great value. Service is a little hit and miss. Australian drinks was a bonus.

    the eggs on the bacon stack were WAY under cooked, felt like I was eating a legit raw egg. however, the chips on the other hand were epic!
