good cafe

Appalling you may just get your car towed...if you don't hear the cafe owner / chef calling out to see if you parked. Both my friend and I had our cars towed after just 15 minutes of being there... Yes we got talking outside the cafe and going to the toilet before walking in.The guy almost looked pleased. We asked for him to talk to the tow company he called. Not a chance apparently taking a loo break was our fault. I've been going to the cafe many times a month but no more. Ticket cost $250.00 - he didn't even apologise he felt justified. The cafe was half empty. That money was earmarked to help a friend in a bad situation - a women's refuge situation. Disgusted at this - this guy was looking sheepish and smiling but no apology. Perhaps the $18 we spent wasn't enough for his precious park.

Gala has often been raved about in Metro etc and I have eaten there may times in the past. However I was very disappointed on a visit we had there today. The service was incredilby lacklustre. Large coffees could only be delivered in a takeaway cup. The latte, flat white and tea all arrived seperately over a period of about 5 minutes. One coffee in a takeaway cup but on a saucer with a spoon and the other without. Very odd. We were one of only two tables in the place that were taken and the food took about 15 minutes.. Very odd for three orders of Eggs Bene... Then we sat for at least an hour without a waitress bothering to ask if we wanted anything else. Again with no other customers there so it wasn't like they were busy. The food was good but the service off par. 

Love coming here but the quantity of food has gone down and the cost has gone up. They make the best blueberry pancakes but I don’t know if I want to pay $45 for brekkie for two

Nestled amongst an apartment complex in Edwin street but definitely worth a visit. Quite a spacious cafe with some outdoor seating with flowing water in the background. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere make this a nice destination for breakfast or lunch. Meals have increased since our last visit to around the $20 mark per person. One of my favorite meals here is the steak sandwich!

The food here is fantastic, service could be improved, but overall a great lunchtime spot. Love the Billy Apple.

This place is hard to find, compared with Circus Circus & Frasers. However, They really know how to make a nice and strong latte. Worth a visit!

The steak sandwich is soooo good!! gorgeous coffee too. very clean comfy environment!!

Their blueberry pancake is amazing! It’s a great place for all ppl except baby as they don’t have high chair, and no enough space for stroller parking inside
