OMG, it was sooooo good, I didnt want it to end. They cater for gluten free and promote general clean eating. Would most definitely return in the future.

Love this place have been coming here for years- the staff are lovely and helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients. There are some favourites on the menu that never change and you know they will always be exceptional - the food and service is always consistently great

If you believe food should be prepared with love, then the Fine Fettle not only prepares but also creates their food with passion! The bread they make on-site is amazingly delicious - I especially enjoyed the white bread served with the eggs benny and salmon which was also the best EVER. Great coffee as was the freshly prepared juice /... More

We needed to dine and dash and wish we'd found this place earlier in our stay. Very reasonably priced, delicious food, quick service - all going the extra mile.

Had lunch at this delightful little cafe recently. Went there with a small group (12 of us) including eight overseas visitors. The menu was very attractive with several tempting options. We had a very tasty meal at reasonable prices.

Called in for a quick coffee after stumbling across this cafe. We were pleased to see the food was organic, real and mostly gluten free and all ended up having food. All very tasty. I ordered a latte but got more of a cappuccino... but it was nice and strong. Will definitely return.

2 pies, bacon and eggs, corn fritters and a milkshake, none of which were any good. Staff unable to tell me what was used as a replacement in the fritters to make them gluten free.

Friendly prompt service. Healthy, delicious food. Extensive menu & cabinet food. Seafood chowder was sensational. Hubby's gourmet mushrooms outstanding & son's homemade pie off the hook.

I was sorry that I only found out about this cafe on the morning I left. A friend suggested we meet there and I was very thankful she suggested it. It is not on the main road so as a tourist I didn't see it. If I had, I would have gone there for every meal- never mind, next time.... More
