Critique is an art form that requires a light touch, with a splash of irony and good humour to soften the blows.

Big brekkie, burgers, fresh juices, and fab coffee
Cafe 4U is one of the few coffee shops boasting a spectacular view of the sun rising over the Broadwater, from the ground floor of the Aqua Building in Labrador.
Tucked away out of the weather, this friendly little café serves up home-style brekkie and burgers to an adoring crowd, without breaking the piggy bank.

Owner-operators lead by example
A truly successful and sustainable restaurant business can only be built by an owner who respects his staff and is willing to work alongside them. Mike Wood is a young, energetic entrepreneur who leads by example.
Mike Woods leads by example
Mike's positive attitude is reflected in his staff, who remain calm, efficient and friendly, even when it's packed out and there's a queue of people waiting to order.
In fact, the overall feeling of the place remains calm and peaceful, despite the hum of lively chatter from contented customers. It's a top spot for a relaxed read of the morning paper, a coffee, juice, snack, or a full cooked breakfast.
