Get here early to beat the groups of hungry cyclists and cheery morning people. The food's all very inviting: tangy, creamy avocado and feta 'mash' on Turkish with tomato and lime-dressed rocket; garlic roasted field mushrooms with capsicum relish and poached egg on sourdough; or a doorstop of wholemeal French toast doused with maple syrup. Or give your arteries a break with healthier options, such as fruit salad, yoghurt and honey. The ambience is homely and quirky - comfy tables outside, an eclectic assortment of lightshades inside and souvenir teaspoons for your coffee. The waiters work hard, though service can be slow at busy times. Still, it's worth a bit of a wait for good-value daytime dining with a relaxed vibe.
