Called in for a cake and coffee whilst travelling around the island. It was nearly closing but the owners couldn't be happier to serve us. Interesting gallery and fabulous gardens. Would highly recommend you pop in on your travels

We stopped off not expecting much, but boy were we wrong! A cute, artistic garden/cafe/gallery in the middle of nowhere. Better still was the food and service. Definatley a must for a break and refreshments on the island.

With gallery attached and with pretty gardens and views this makes for a great stop in a bit of the island where the other offerings we found were lacklustre. Friendly owners.

I love the atmosphere, sitting outside with the wild kangaroos is a must. Off course they also have amazing art. A lovely little place to... More
