Desperate for a decent coffee after the disappointments of our resort we stopped in here after driving past it many times. Doesn't look much from road but looks are often deceptive as we found out.

I stopped in one day after needing a decent coffee, and that's exactly what I got, the coffee is fantastic and the custard squares are delicious.

I’m a secret fan of custard tarts but having read about these custard slices I just had to try one on our latest trip. And I have to admit – they are very good indeed. I bought one to take home for morning tea and my husband chose an apple and nut slice from memory. All the offerings in the... More

Saw a sign on our first day saying 'best custard squares on the island'. Stopped in on one of our days when we were passing. Custard squares were nice but nothing special and at $4.90 each I won't be rushing back. Service was average also.
