Under new management, all food is made from scratch. The chicken and camembert pie was delicious and was served with a side salad. The staff were friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was great!

Yaay! This cafe has at long last re-opened with new owners, lovely views of the gardens from the deck, comfy seats (with cushions!) and a great new menu - including all day breakfasts and vegetarian and gluten-free options! A great place to treat yourself / family / visitors - try the chai slushy - seriously yummy!
