I'd really like to say some great things about this place because so many people have raved about it, but after my recent brunch experience at Doof Doof, I think they must have been talking about a different place. For starters, there's no table service. You have to go up and order at the counter. Yes, yes, we're supposed to be used to this in Adelaide, but I'm sick of having to do all the work when I go out to enjoy myself. Secondly, it took more than 20 minutes for me to get my juice (which was delicious, and the best part of the meal), on a morning when the place was only about half to two-thirds full. Our meals took over 30 minutes. Thirdly, my meal was just plain tasteless. My poached eggs were completely cooked through, which is fine if this is how you ask for them, but I didn't. The spinach was just steamed. No butter, no seasoning, nothing else, and my mushrooms were properly cooked, if unseasoned. The bread, however, was toasted and then obviously left to sit for quite a while cause it came out very hard, and only one of the slices was buttered. A pretty average experience all round.

Huge serves! The lasagne is nice and they give you lots of warm bread and 3-4 different fresh salads on the side. Seating is horrible but it is meant to be a small cafe and they do do take-away.

I booked brunch for a large group and whilst I would return again, I wouldn't take a large group again - it was a bit chaotic and the staff do not appear to be equipped for it. There were long delays with the drink orders with the final drinks arriving about 50 minutes after the order was placed. Food was organised better with minimal delays and meals arriving in a reasonable pace. Can definitely recommend the juices - delicious and nice big glasses. The only improvement would be some ice on a hot day. Coffee was also good. The meals were a generous serve (the omelette was huge).

Went there for a Saturday breakfast with my wife and 2 kids. We watched with increasing frustration while 3 other tables who arrived and ordered after us got their food, ate and left. We approached the waiter who whinged about being short staffed and was completely uninterested that we had been inconvenienced, and rude. Finally the food arrived, after 45 minutes or so, which was pretty good after all that. Someone in charge finally came along and gave us our money back - kudos to that person! However we won't be going back. The table next to us left in disgust after watching us battle the waiter. I would not recommend this place for service or courtesy, especially if you have young kids.
