Description: Hi all, just little something about us here at Willows. We are family owned and run, we opened our doors in Jan 2012 after traveling around the world. Whilst traveling we learnt a great deal about how we wanted to share Willows with customers, we want all our customers to feel at home and share in our relaxed home from home.We specialise in high quality coffee and light lunches, we are only a small place with 4 tables. We serve freshly made sandwichs & baguettes, our bread is delivered fresh daily from our Village bakery.Our Coffee has been recognised by Coffee Culture & Excellence for its high quality, we make all our coffee the Aussie way. Which we learnt in Melbourne last year (2011), in Melbourne the coffee culture is of the highest quality and standards are second to none!! We would also recommend for the serious coffee lovers to try our 'Willows Vacuum Coffee' which your brew yourself at your table. It merges coffee / science / theatreall as one.We hope to see you all soon and say hi when you do come in.Take care & safe travels to you all.Willows Family

Brilliant, love this cafe. Only improvement would be not running out of ingredients for my favourite sandwich before lunch time is over.

Had a bacon bap and a cup of tea in this very simple and stylish eatery. It's a little out of the way but worth every additional step you have to take to get their. Good prices, friendly staff, cosy and a bit different. Wholly recommend it if you are in the area. Not just breakfasts but lots to choose... More

I was only made aware of this place after speaking with the owner last bonfire night, he was a good guy, passionate about good coffee, (as am I), so I thought I’d have a look and was very pleased that I did. It is a pity that there is not more room to sit, or I’d go there more, however... More

We visited after picking up their card at the Tourist Information office. Having had vacuum coffee before I was keen to have some more. The shop is indeed small but very cosy and clean. The waitress actually made the vacuum coffee at our table explaining the process. Coffee was of a very high standard and although we did not eat... More
