Personal greeting by the owners as you walk in is a great touch - lots of interesting wares for sale and a really great cafe - we had the cheese platter it was excellent -quirky garden setting.

The people who own this are lovely and always wanting to help you out with info about the area. They have a small cafe with home made food which is delicious! Very good coffee too! 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

Had lunch there but was very disappointed. The calamari salad was drowning in vinegar which overpowered everything else on the plate and the quinoa salad was very sparse with a few olives anspd bits of tomatoe.
