I had the eggs benedict and they were absolutely lovely. Everyone else enjoyed their fare. Their latte was one of the nicest I've ever had. Cute decor and lots if quirky nostalgic items gives the cafe a pleasantly haphazard look. The only set back was the ordinary iced coffee and the smoothies that needed a bit of honey to give... More

It was a wonderful experience, they have a lot of produce from the local area. I had a coffee which was delicious. I sat outside and enjoy the activity of the world passing by.

We went for lunch with overseas relatives and really enjoyed the share plate menu and a local bottle of wine. The use of local produce and wine adds to the friendly feel and great food of this family run business. Having the owner out front helping with orders, etc always makes for a pleasant experience too. Overall a great place... More

I went her with my family for lunch and ordered a tasting platter to share. On first glance it looks like a weird set up with fake trades men hanging from the ceiling and other quirky things going on like a suggestion box above the doorway completely out of reach lol! It was great with all fresh ingredients and plenty... More

The food here was great with a really good selection of gluten free options. The staff were friendly and helpful. Try the hot chips... triple fried! not good for the waist line but oh, they tasted good. Decor is retro and interesting. Who has carpet sweepers on their wall?

Nice little place we decided to visit due to the great reviews. We stayed for lunch and I ordered the Steak Sanga. Was terrific, and their little idea for the salad side is great. The chips could have used more work, they are natural however perhaps they were cooked in a colder oil at our visit due to being a... More
