Only a Cafe but meals can be interesting

Coffee is very good, the meals are varied and interesting, take your time with menu as there are a lot of varied choices. The staff will mix and match what you might like and meet your needs so if you have an off pitch need they will try to help. There is seating inside but most seats are on... read more

Coffee and food are always good. We mostly go here for coffee and sometimes breakfast. The mini beni is delicious! The staff and owners are friendly and nothing is a problem.

I came for breakfast to The Caf with my family and each one of our breakfasts was great. We ordered breakfast bowls, bruschetta, and zucchini spaghetti. Our fresh juices were beautiful and the coffee very good. My son and daughter in law (who were with us) own a restaurant in Sydney and they too were impressed. The service was worth... More

This place was buzzing - we sat inside at large table enjoying a really innovative menu for lunch. Service was fast and efficient despite it being so busy. It was cool inside. Coffee was delicious and creamy froth - fresh juices and smoothies. The pulled lamb salad was delicious. On a side street and weekend parking across the road or... More

Ordered the breakfast wrap and coffee. The wrap was delicious and the coffee very good. The lady taking the orders was very friendly and efficient. The breakfast came out quickly considering the café was full on a Saturday morning. The café has a great atmosphere. We have been previously and will definitely go again.
