Worth the wait

I appeared in the area by accident and found this gem. I had to wait for a table. They told me 50 mins but it was only 20 mins only. I was happy i had some intriguing options rather than just avo toast. The food was delicious and so interesting. Not your boring pasta. The cakes looked stunning but I didn’t try any.
Obviously not super cheap but Id be willing to pay more for this.

Pros: Wonderful dishes, Atmosphere, Staff

Cons: You might have to wait but it’s ok

Good food but super limited options

I've been here twice for brunch and while the food is lovely there are only two vegan savoury options and one sweet (which is way too sweet). We (two adults) were seated right next to a table with three toddlers despite there being a heap of adults seated elsewhere and a heap of empty tables. They did reseat us when we asked but just.. weird to have put us there in the first place.

Pros: Delicious if you like one of the options

Cons: Really limited vegan options

Tasty cakes

The vegan apple cake was amazing! There’s a fair few savoury options, and it tasted not too bad, but it was super busy, and I’d only really go back for the cakes.

Pros: Amazing amazing amazing cakes , Quite intricate vegan options, v unusual, Awesome decoration

Cons: Expensive, Super duper busy

It's themed like a scene out of Alice in Wonderland. A cute, fantasy-like adventure awaits: that is if you can get a table. It's busy and parking is not easy either. But once you are seated you may enjoy the experience. The service was attentive.
We popped in quickly for a snack and ended up with smoothies. Mine was a black forest, not too sweet which I enjoyed.
The menu had plenty of vegan options, they also have cakes. Events advertised included a Vegan High Tea and Vegan Day lunch. But it all seemed rather expensive.

Cons: Expensive

Great food

Few vegan options. Menu changes regularly, so new things to try each season! Beautiful restaurant too - just can be noisy during busy times! But always prompt service

Pros: Delicious, Few vegan options

Just so expensive

Having had the Garden Party burger - a small, dry, tasteless and vastly overpriced ($22) joke - here a while ago, I thought I’d never come back. However, I was meeting a friend who worked in the neighbourhood and we chose this place because I knew it had vegan options. The smashed avocado was much better than the burger, with actual flavour - enough for me to award an extra star. However, at $22 it was, like the burger, ridiculously overpriced, particularly for the portion size.

Cons: Expensive
