So happy we found this little place!

My partner and I were desperate for a coffee on a Sunday at about 4:30 and had driven along the highway from Sorrento looking for somewhere open, and then this place popped up! We were greeted by lovely staff :) I have to make a shout out to those scones though!! OMG.. I would have to put them up... read more

Great breakfasts, all the favourites and a good selection of some others with a bit of a twist. There is a wood fire in winter and the décor is very homely with its mismatched tables and chairs. Good coffee and friendly service.

We popped in a couple of weeks ago. I wanted a coffee and the place looked interesting. Wow. From the minute we entered we were impressed. We ended up with a wine and beer, a shared panini and coffee. The presentation was amazing and although the place was busy we were served food promptly. The serves were generous and there... More

There was absolutely nothing I disliked about this cafe, and plenty to praise. Everything (and I mean everything) on the menu was exquisitely presented and mouth watering. I was eyeing-up other patron's plates as they came out of the kitchen and I literally could have eaten any of the dishes. There are lots of choices on the menu - I... More

Our first visit was for a birthday service and food was good nothing you couldn't find at any other cafe and the atmosphere is relaxed. Our group ordered purple potatoes, pulled porks and soup. The purple potatoes stretched the entire length of the bread board it arrive on with lashings of melted cheese sour cream n bacon and capers enough... More

Don't get me wrong, the food was pretty good and was pretty good value for money. We were in a group of 5 for breakfast and everyone was quite happy with their meals however most had a negative experience with a single server at some stage. Some issues with attitude, everything was a problem, abrupt manner etc. Basically a bad... More

I popped in here for a coffee only which was delicious by the way. I hoped it would be as I had followed the reviews from bean hunter!! I love a place that has couches to really sit back and enjoy your coffee as if you were at home on the couch. It also offers local produce tasting and sales.... More
