Warm and friendly

Just around the corner from our unit, we ate here several times, and tried all their homemade soups. Charming waitress, lots of nice cabinet food cooked on the premises.

Great place to eat after a day at the snow. Love the open fire! The home made soups were warming and wholesome.

My mum and I like to sample new cafes, and since we've tried all the other ones in town we decided to give the Mustard Seed Cafe a go. The staff did not make eye-contact with us even once. No greeting, no smile, not even a "can I help you?" The lady behind the counter scurried off to clear a... More

We stopped at your cafe on Saturday morning after having travelled across the Desert Road where it was only 2 degrees. What a welcome - the fire had just been lit, the coffee machine ready to go and the most amazing cheese scones waiting to tempt us. Don't change the recipe - we will be back. Mike and Lynn

Called in on way to Palmy Nth from a sad time at family funeral in Hamilton. Quaint, understated, casual and warm. Open fire & good food, great coffee at $3.90! Just what we needed to get us back home to a "new normal". Will definitely be back!!

We found the Mustard Seed Cafe by mistake, having decided against the Cafe/Bakehouse as one of my friends is on Weightwatchers, and drove round the back looking for the public conveniences, which are almost next door. Easy parking and we were delighted to see the lovely rose garden, with a table free, having been in the car for several hours.... More

This is such a nice spot. I was trilled to find G.F. food as I often have trouble. The service was slow but we sat in their beautiful rose garden and enjoyed a glass of wine while we waited. I would go back here anytime.
