Happy faces

The staff here had wonderful smiles and were happy which sets the a happy atmosphere at this cafe. Our eggs for breakfast were lovely and the scones fresh and tasty. The coffee good but the service makes this place.

This café felt like a canteen inside, had to sit outside for any atmosphere, food not cheap either, service could be better to.

Ignoring customers while standing at the counter to be Served. No menus displayed, food cabinets bare wouldn't recommend at all. Far better choices in greytown. Disappointed for such a new cafe.

Any place with toys for the kids is a huge bonus to entertain my Rugrats so I can enjoy a coffee/lunch in peace for 5 minutes. This place is so spacious, light and fresh. Coffee & service was great & will definitely be back :)

No complaints about the quality of the fish cakes and salad here although lunch for three with drinks was a little expensive for cafe style dining. Friendly staff and good enough service.

We only stopped for half and hour to have a coffee and muffin. All food was over priced but we could not help but notice that the table we first went to sit at had a large number of dirty dishes from the previous customers, so we sat just inside. To our amazement those dirty dishes stayed while 2 other... More

Went in for lunch because nothing else along Main Street really appealed our group of 6. We weren't very impressed with the food we ordered, but the Savory Pie & Ham Panini we ordered were good, but there was a long wait. The 1 FOH staff member was stressed out and there was a 15% surcharge - You expect a... More

We hadn't eaten here before, but I had read good reviews about the place so decided to give it a try. I had beef and mushroom pie and my husband, the bacon and egg filo. The latter was thoroughly enjoyed, but unfortunately some of the beef in my pie was a little tough. Apart from that, we found that it... More

The food here is good. But it's overpriced. The eggs on toast come with one piece of toast and its $5.80 to add half and avocado! Coffee is ok.
