Fabulous service, food tasted amazing and they were able to cater for a big group without disturbing the rest of the restaurant (too much haha) would go again and will definitely recommend
Loved the healthy food choices and fresh juices. Orange almond cake was especially good. Nice casual, quiet, sunny setting in courtyard during the week. Perfect for lunch or breakfast.
Great food.. booked through your company but there was no reserved seating, scored a table outside so all good. .will be back anyways... lovely restaurant in the Corso
Food was nice and enjoyed the peaceful courtyard to eat. There was a good selection of food and drink on the menu. No freakshakes though!
Staff were rushed and unfriendly as a result. It took a long time for our meals to come out and when one wasn’t correct, they tried to lay blame on my son saying he must have ordered it wrong! We won’t be back.
Too hot and not enough shade in the courtyard Food was very nice but surprised by 10% surcharge on Sunday for breakfast Might consider revisiting when cooler and not on Sunday
Great smoothies, good vibe. Can use a little air con. Food was good but not too bad, could have been better. 10% surcharge on Sunday Kind of ruined it
The Corn Fritters looked ok ,but were a little doughy. The Eggs Benedict with ham needs a little work on the presentation, nicer ham perhaps & drain the poached eggs as it left the bread soggy.
It's a little bit pricey but the best goji berries i've ever had - in the Acai Accelerator bowl. Comes to about $14 for that alone.
Very disappointed. After going specifically to try the decadent milkshakes (which are advertised on their website) we were told "we don't do them anymore". The wait staff didn't really seemed to care less and were quite disinterested, when we mentioned they were being advertised on their site.
