Close to the best pizza I have ever had followed by chocolate cake made by the pizza chef's Mum then you couldn't go past the Bailey's hot chocolate ........ Delicious. Great atmosphere, interesting characters. Wish we could go back again!

Great coffee, superb cakes and welcoming friendly service make this cafe well worth a visit. Recent revamp has retained all the charm.

Sadly the pizza oven was out of action so opted for tapas which was nice, the staff were friendly and the atmosphere was good. Though the temperature could have done with being turned up a notch.

Not what you expect in the Lakes. Food good. Mixed crowd of customers. Quite a few locals. What more would one want?

A nice find this place... A coffee shop/cafe/bar that is vibrant, charming and quite bohemian. We went with friends in the evening for food and a few drinks. The menu is basically Tapas and Pizzas. A decent range of Tapas that sounded great and other customers choices were looked upon with great envy! The pizzas are a more 'traditional' stone... More

Orange was close to our rented townhouse so it became our local on this trip. We found most staff very pleasant and the beers nice and the setting wonderful, it was great chatting to locals and tourists the same and we cannot wait to return again.
