Only visited for a quick coffee...just the way I love it. The place was packed and the meals we saw looked delicious. They also have a small separate cheese room...sadly we didn't have the time to go in but it all looked fabulous.

Waited 30 minutes for a Ploughmans lunch. Processed Turkey, a piece of bread and salad for $20. Way overpriced. They may have good cheese and ice cream so I'll give it 2/5 rather than 1.

Great service, great selection . Wonderful to be able to taste before we purchased. Which only made us buy more as it is hard not to buy - it is so yummy

Lots of tasty morsels at this establishment. Great gelato and and lots of chutneys, jams and sauces on display. If cheese is your thing then you'll love the fantastic cheese room.

What a brilliant selection of cheeses. Had been told by a friend but was so happy to try it for myself. Best cheese platter in a long while

I'd eaten here with friends before so decided to return while we were nearby. The place was busy and after standing in a lengthy queue that turned out to be for ice cream we ordered focaccias - one salmon - one chicken. Took a while but worth the wait - very tasty with a nice balance of flavours - nice... More

We enjoy ice cream and gelati in summers, and warm cappuccino in winter. Nice selection of cheeses, cured meats and olives too to take away.

We had the opportunity to eat here a few times over the last few months. The food and coffee was always good and, for any coeliacs out there, there are gluten free options on the menu. The ice-cream is delicious and so many flavours to choose from. It is great to find a place that can cater for my food... More

Expect a long wait when you order coffee's, I mean waiting 45 mins for coffee is a joke.. Our order was 2 hot chocolates, 3 flat whites, we watched people come and go before our small order came out! Staff weren't happy campers, it wasn't busy we walked in and 1/2 tables empty.. Get more stuff for Sundays especially around... More
