Lured in by the "Best Custard Squares on the Island" sign out the front and was not disappointed. Their toasted sandwiches weren't too bad either.

I have to say that this really was a surprise. Its not the most inviting cafe to look at as its quite commercial looking and you'd drive right by it if you were not concentrating, but the service, coffee and food was faultless. I was just in the mood for eggs bene but to make it even more perfect they... More

We stopped here for morning tea as there was a sign outside saying "Best Custard Squares on the Island" they weren't wrong. In fact we went as they were amazing! Coffee was good too.

We went for the custard slice , and we went back twice because it was so nice, rhyming aside ! It is A goody not amazing blow your socks off stuff but fresh cold and yum. Not the friendliest of places , but certainly if you like your custard slice go and get one .

A good place for a quick home made lunch close to the airport. We love their steak pies, fresh salads and their smoothies. Their service is always prompt and courteous. Their prices are reasonable. A few more smiles would be great.
