Loved the food

Warm summer evening, sitting watching the world go by, a good menu and local wine - what more do you want on holiday? If I'm picky it's just about the space available for a busy restaurant, but the service was excellent.

Well, it's been in business since I arrived here in 2004- so they must be doing something right! Quality and consistency, good coffee, and a funky wine bar too.

Had breakfast with about 4 others while in town for work. Really nice breakfast. The food was all delicious and it is a reliable place to eat. You order and pay at the counter but the food is of a much higher calibre.

I have been there twice now and the first time I ordered a mocha and it was the best coffee I have ever had in my life. Both times food was really delicious, fast service and friendly staff :) I will definitely be returning.

We visited this cafe mid morning which was very busy due to the holiday season. Although we had to wait for 30 minutes for our meals it was well worth it. All the meals were fantastic and most importantly brilliant coffee which was served promptly.
