Well named as the food is full of flavour

I had a great breakfast here from the specials menu, smashed advocado and eggs and had the balsamic mushrooms as a side. It was delicious as was the hot fresh coffee

After eye'ing up the delicious baked goods we decided to stay for breakfast. Yummy choices and friendly staff, only complaint would be I wish the food was hotter. Great place though, keep up the delicious treats and food!

We went there for the breakfast, our bacon was overcooked and the rest of the plate was average. Recommended by our motel host and with so many good reviews, maybe it's just our tastes.

we had lunch here...a couscous salad and a falafel platter with grilled halloumi cheese. Both were exceptional. Coffee as a follow-on, so we didn't feel guilty taking advantage of the wifi, excellent.

We had smashed advocado with poached eggs on sour dough toast. It was great and cost just 12 dollars.

Had breakfast here a couple of mornings looking out over the lake. The people were very friendly and readily accommodated our "special" requests including vegemite for my brother. Good coffee. The focaccia they used for fast was perfect with avocado. Cut thick but very light.

We had a late lunch at this café. The service was very friendly, and they went out of their way to make it easy for us. They made a special toasted sandwich for our three year old, and it arrived first so no issues with a hungry child. Our food was very tasty, and reasonably priced. They do breakfast and... More
