Best cafe in miles! Cannot recommend enough. The food is always an amazing standard, with a varied menu. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the catering is exceptional.

Visited this cafe many times for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Food is always fresh and well prepared and there's a few interesting breakfast items on the menu -like Italian breakfast for instance. Staff are friendl yand efficient and I discovered today that there is a nice, large garden out the back for al fresco dining. Highly recommended
