We went there with friends for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised, great brunch menu, coffee. You have a choice of inside outside dining, good kids area inside. Quieter outside if weekends of holidays due to a lot of children. Not far from the airport, good parking

I work locally and my team will often meet here for breakfast. As we are a large team they allow us to preorder our meals so we can maximise the time we have in the morning. Service is efficient and very friendly. The food both from the breakfast menu and cabinet is all good.

I have been to this cafe 3 times on the way to and from the airport. Everytime I have had the most fantastic service not only from the "main man" there but all the staff. On Friday I called in with Mum on way to airport and the place was packed, hardly moving room let alone a seat. Within seconds... More

Wow, this is a bit of a gem. I knew they had great veges & produce & now I know they have great lunch food as well. Had the lamb dish. The lamb was cooked very nicely & the accompanying salad was fresh. Unfortunately after having some superb polenta a week or so earlier I was disappointed with the polenta... More

Staff extremely friendly and made sure our needs were met in every way possible. The service was seen across all staff, not just a select few. Tucker was pretty good too!

Cafe Raeward a has the most amazing staff! The owner/manager has to be the best I've come across with regards to service. He's always helping his staff, proactive with the customers and always ensuring everyone is happy with the meals. He's always a happy, friendly guy. They also provide great kids meals and a great "munch box" full of healthy... More

I took my children to this cafe for lunch on Tuesday, and with a friend visiting on Wednesday thought I would take her and her four children there for lunch, and meet another friend with her child. The rude unpleasant and unfriendly Manager refused to let my friend through to the family area to see if there was any space.... More

Turned up with 6 hungry kids yesterday. They are loud but fairly cute. The manager looked us up and down and said they were too busy for us. When we came by 15 minutes later the family room was empty. Am really disappointed to be treated like second class citizens because I have small people. Why have a playground if... More
