Have a go at their famous toasted Masala Steak Special, stuffed with slow-cooked steak, egg, chips, cheese and a side of salad – yum! For a true vuil dyt, feast on a masala steak, spicy chicken or classic vienna gatsby.

For all the pizza lovers out there, this café really has a treat for you. Their pizza dough is perfectly made, producing a pizza crust that’s light and fluffy – just as the Neapolitans intended. For something a little extra, take a bite of their oven-baked calzones.

If you’re looking for something juicy to sink your teeth into, their flame-grilled burgers should be at the top of your foodie list. Only the finest meat is utilised before being cooked to perfection on the grill. Their chicken fillet burgers are another winner too. The chicken is marinated for 24 hours in a secret sauce before being flame-grilled and served.
