Good seafood pizza and salt and pepper squid, lovely setting, basic but good. Just what we needed after a busy day wine tasting!

We recently enjoyed a yummy breakfast and I have to say I was very happy to see on the menu Gluten Free Bread and to be told the bacon was GF as well. Just made the breakfast all the bit yummier.

We had a good meal on a Friday night. The presentation left a bit to be desired, but the food was quite okay and the prices reasonable. Would we go back, perhaps, but there are other options close by.

A review earlier this year gave cause for concern for this once icon of McLaren Vale. Would I go back? Two recent visits reflect that things are back on track. Meal sizes are good. Breakfast was hot. Service was spot-on, even judging when to serve my later-on coffee (that's a coffee to start with, and a coffee later on). Long... More

We arrived at 10.20am on a Sunday and shorty after ordered 3 serves of toast and pancakes. At 11.35am breakfast was served. We were told there would be a half hour wait, but for the simplicity of what we ordered and the actual wait time experienced, it was unacceptable. Coffee was good and so were the pancakes. Would recommend if... More

We all need fortification when we are on a wine tasting adventure. This is the place to get it. Creative food and a reasonable price. Do make reservations as this place is almost always booked up.

This place is simply the best. Simple in style but great on service and serves of food are large. Been here twice with friends and we all enjoyed our meals. Service is friendly and quick. Very reasonably priced. Nice to sit outside on a sunny day. Would go again and again.

We chose this cafe for breakfast during our visit to McLaren Vale and we weren't disappointed. It was an easy walk from our motel and offered a good choice of options for breakfast.

Over the years we've been there a lot. We invariably take visitors. Been there 5 times this year. Suddenly things have changed. Last twice - serves are smaller, bacon overdone, bread not toasted, tomatoes pathetic (once), cold baked beans (once). I gather there's a change somewhere. Saving grace was the coffee. Last twice coffee has been fantastic. I hope they... More
