Excelant variety selection on the menu.

Went here with family - great little place. Bit tight around the table seating, trying to get to many tables for the space. Meals were flavoursome and abundant.

Service and staff were fine - bit cramped but otherwise good atmosphere. Food presentation was confusing and not well presented but in saying that tasted fine. Has potential to be an excellent venue but needs Management to take that step.

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.
