If you like your breakfast big, spend as many mornings here as possible. Free of fuss, full of fast-breaking goodness.

If breakfast is the most important meal, then Java Lounge is a very important place. Here you will find the remedy to your hangover or the solution to your morning munchies thanks to the cafe's straight forward breakfast menu. Free of bells and whistles and fussy breakfast options, Java Lounge serves up the real deal. When they say it's a 'big breakfast,' they're not kidding.

While the food may be straight forward, the cafe's interior is a little less so. Eclectic red chairs and couches are scattered throughout the venue, while bright and bold artworks cover the walls. It's a little bit of a mish-mash but you're not here to take in the scenery, you're here to get your breakfast on. On the menu you can order eggs any way you like them, delicious Bircher muesli, toast any which way, banana bread, pancakes, crispy bacon and gourmet vegetarian options. Java also cook up a mean brekky burger, but in my eyes the Canadian Breakfast, including pancakes with maple syrup, fried eggs and bacon ticks all the boxes. Unsurprisingly, coffee here is also a speciality. The cafe uses local brand Frisky Goat Espresso, and also have a charming selection of tea on offer too.

Once you've exhausted the breakfast menu, lunch at Java Lounge is also recommended. On the lunch menu you'll find your typical cafe styled sandwiches and salads – but with a little more love involved.
