Brilliant Service & Fantastic Food

It's sometimes hard to find great healthy, gluten free or organic food, particularly when it tastes this good! Staff were very friendly and accommodating too.

It's a pleasure eating... More

Fresh tasty wholesome food. Good selection for lunch. Friendly service. Great coffee. If you have to, beat others off with a stick to get the carrot cake - it'll be worth it. They should do a recipe book!

During the whole time we were there, no one came in to sit at the reserved table. Ordered some slices from the... More

My husband and I had lunch here on Christmas Eve. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I loved the range of vegetarian food, which could have meat added. I had vegan nachos made using quinoa and when I commented how much I'd liked them the waitress told me that the recipe was up on their Facebook page. My... More

Family breakfast here - staff friendly and helpful; great coffee; food wonderful - very tasty and excellent menu. Nothing a problem. Great views out the large windows. Easy to see why it was busy and also why it is our children's cafe of choice! Well done. When we are back - we will be back here!
