Just came out of the cinema and looking for something to eat in The Patio of Pacific Fair. Everywhere else seemed full, so we chose this place for its reasonably price meals and colourful area. The guy at the counter was super nice and was really interested in what movie we just saw. Ordering was simple and we got a buzzer to use for picking up both food and drink when they were ready. Drinks took 5 minutes (a Peach Mango Iced Tea and Ice Latte). We waited for the buzzer to go off for our food, but there was no need! The same guy who served us at the counter brought our food and cutlery over to us. There is no table service, just going the extra mile. Food was really yummy and great portion sizes. Will be back for sure.
This place is not fancy, the food is delicious and fresh, and the staff are welcoming. It's hidden away and most people walk straight past it or just treat it like a takeaway sandwich/coffee shop - which is stupid, because if you have 30 mins, you'll have the best lunch a busy work week can offer. That breakfast menu has enough options to get me through the day, and my lunch is early enough to have something from that but if you want the open-face salmon sandwich with salad, or fish cakes, or home made chips with your soft drink, this is the place to come. Good coffee too: rich and not bitter and the cup isn't full of froth. Fresh water out front so you can help yourself; chess and backgammon on that big table but I haven't seen many people play there yet. I had some fritatta with veggies and fetta (I think they said it was fetta, didn't seem like ricotta) and it was really really nice. Gonna try some cake slice next time.
I visited for the first time recently with some of my friends. They offered amazing service and great food! Loved the French cafe atmosphere. Loved the macarons and best coffee ever! Highly recommend.
