I really wanted to like this place, after reading everything that people were writing about it, but found it average at best. Perhaps it was the dishes we ordered, or perhaps it just is bland. Either way, I'm not convinced I'll return to try anything other than the coffee, which really did smell good. I popped in for a casual lunch date with my girl pal Eve on a lazy Saturday afternoon, and found a seat by the countertop.
This was the better main of the two, since the chicken salad that followed fell completely flat.
Wrong. Even with a generous squeeze of lime juice, the Relative Chicken Salad (AUD$16.50) had no flavour to speak of, which left us feeling fairly disappointed. It was one-dimensional and bland, and we tried to salvage it by adding some hot sauce. Sadly, the slice of bread that came with it was cold, lifeless and stiff - it would have been nice if they warmed it up prior to serving it, but on the whole, this just did not cut it for us.
