I wonder if reviewer JoeCitizen is an angry ex-employee:-) ??? My visit to Ampersand today was amazing. Great food, great service, and delicious coffee. Bought a book too! All for under $30. Brunch was called Mediterranean - a delicios haloumi based brekky. Macciato was perfection. Chef was rather cute also. Highly recommended as the best cafe spot in Paddington.
