Awesome food, decent prices and good service. This place is always bustling and with good reason. Great for breakfasts (the hotcakes are amazing) lunch or just a beer and fries in the sun. Try the bean stack if you go for brunch, it's top!

I have been here on quite a few occasions and I have now tried every dessert on the menu here. I am unable to pick a favourite as I score each of them a 10/10. The mains that I have tried here have all been great too. We held my mum a surprise 50th dinner here and they catered for about 30 of us really well. We all enjoyed our food and our waitress was awesome. Great place for a casual coffee, dinner date or small function.

Papermoon is a very busy café/bar restaurant /bakery /gellateria, yes they do it all and the majority of the time they do it right. They must as they are usually so busy. We went there on a brilliantly sunny day which was also a public holiday, due to this we rang ahead and asked for a seat outside in the sun. We got half of that, we got a seat outside unfortunately on the wrong side of the café so it was in the shade. The initial service with taking orders and delivery drink was quick and we had no problems. Unfortunately we waited about 25-35 minutes for our food and the time we went it wasn’t greatly busy. It didn’t really matter though as there were four of us so it gave us time to catch up.

The food we ordered was Lamb’s fry, bacon and squeak which is simply lamb’s liver with bacon and cabbage mash. This plate of food was a delicious version of one of the most underrated breakfast around everything was well grilled and well-seasoned.

The eggs on toast were just that, nothing less or more than expected and hit the spot. The omelettes served at Papermoon are described on the menu as open plan omelette; inspiration occurs at 7.30am and changes daily. Today’s inspiration was chorizo and was finished off with pleasure. The only problem I had with the food was actually the dish I ordered for myself. Hot smoked snapper kedgeree with Manuka fennel relish, spinach, poached egg and Bengal spiced hollandaise. Now I am all up for using artistic licence but this simply was not Kedgeree.

So Papermoon did have the spices in the hollandaise which was clever and they certainly had the smoked fish. It just simply wasn’t Kedgeree it was just fishcakes with hollandaise and poached eggs. So moaning over I would like to say at this point, they were brilliant fishcakes! Presentation was great and the smoked flavour was beautiful so despite it not actually being Kedgeree it was delicious all the same.

Overall it was nice to see they joined the increasing group of no surc
