    Very cool place, looks like a traditional farm! Very nice coffee and pastries, bread, cakes. It's very busy and quite expensive

    Awesome place to visit while in Sydney. Very unique but best to get a reservation ahead. Long wait on weekends.

    If you don't want to wait, get takeaway & eat in the garden. There r stands in the garden as well selling some of the same menu items.

    Get there early on weekends and it is well worth the wait for a warm inside table in these wintry months. FanTASTIC food and great coffee!

    Getting a park, table and food is such a sh*t fight I shudder if anyone suggests this place. On the upside, garden is lovely.

    Great vibe n introduction to Sydney's cafe culture but a little contrived and premium for the local repeat customer

    If eating in, put your name down first as you will be waiting up to 45mins. Then grab a coffee sit in the garden and chillax to the beats

    Great food and food shopping but parking is horrid and badly co-ordinated by staff. Will only return when on 2 wheels.

    Ladies, leave your name at the door for the 45 min wait and then go to the excellent Bendon shop next door for discounts on Bendon lingerie and Elle Macpherson intimates!

    The ambiance of the restaurant is great. However the food is very ordinary. May be the atmosphere increased my expectations very high and that’s because I did not find the food tasty.
