Fantastic local food. We popped in here on our way down to the Mornington Peninsula and we were delighted by this gem. Really friendly owners and staff, great menu and almost every dish was gluten free I was in heaven. Really happy with the food, help and service thank you.

Came here for a Valentines Day lunch. We loved the relaxed feel of the place, and the decor had a lot of character. We ordered salads and a tasting plate. Tasting plate was yummy, although some of the items on the menu were not available and had to be substituted. Salads were delicious! I had calamari and chorizo, which was... More

The morning my husband and I went there were 4 new staff and it was very busy but all ran like clockwork. Lots of choice on the menu and well catered if you... More

Service was prompt and friendly. My wife had "The Standard" meal which was tasty and the salad was really fresh. One friend had the calamari salad... More

After looking forward to lunch at this establishment for weeks, having heard that the food and produce is great, we arrived to an empty cafe with two staff on duty. Upon ordering the food, a dark haired waitress greeted us with an arrogant, annoyed attitude, as if we were causing her some unwanted work. She was unhelpful and rude to... More

Great spot for lunch, coffee or a glass of local wine. The salads are amazing! So fresh & tasty, great menu with lots of options. Check out all their local products including wines, chutneys, honey & more.
