Sharing plates for 10 carnivores and vegetarians is a hard task but Ginger Baker did it well. A delightful summers day under a lovely canopy of trees with the excitement of an Audax bike ride in the background combined with the enthusiasm of the local swimming hole at full throttle added to a great day. Good coffee and reasonably priced... More

Seven of us enjoyed a leisurely two hour luncheon outside under the shaded canopy. We all truly enjoyed our lunch. Fresh , tasty and ample portions. Ten tapas dishes ordered and only one let us down, no horseradish cream in the salmon salad. The staff are incredibly friendly and engaging. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

Food is a little over the top but better than the closest place and priced better for value. Superb outlook and setting. Staff are very friendly and the premises is always clean. A must for a breakfast and coffee or a late warm night drink or dinner. Ps love the ice cream stand. Genius.

In January 2015, we returned after a fantastic breakfast experience in 2014 only to be let down. Our annual trip with family was enjoyed less after an unthoughtful breakfast prepared by the chefs here. Fried eggs that were so dry it was as if they had been sitting for hours, dry poached eggs that were asked to be runny and... More

Perfect place for a relaxing breakfast next to the river with the dogs. Good food and great coffee from a local roaster.

We chose a set out the back as we didn't want the music that can be heard at the front or inside. Much more pleasant out the back anyway so much to see ! Great breakfast choices and dearer than other cafes but the quality and choice was delicious. Will go back next holiday but only to sit out the... More

Food was inedible. Ordered a broad selection of "tapas" items, struggled to swallow a mouthful, tasted of oil and nothing else. Seriously, calamari, lamb chops, pork belly and summer vegetables. All just greasey and nothing else. In terms of venue/aesthetic, looks good on a superficial level but seating poorly thought out, with the waitress herself tripping over to get to... More

Excellent seating behind the cafe, overlooking the river and the splash park. One of the best coffees I have had and breakfast that was done to perfection. The best start to our morning and put a smile on our face for the rest of the day. Cannot recommend this place enough!

Such a lovely setting, if you can score seats out the back overlooking the river. The menu is not traditional, which disappointed the Big Breakfast Fan, but delighted me. Coffee: 7/10. There's no kids menu, and we struggled to find something smaller yet interesting for the little one. We ended up ordering the French toast with caramel pears, and it... More
