Stopped in here for breakfast after a weekend hike. Didn't feel out of place in my tramping gear. Service was very very slow but they were super busy. Coffee was great, as was the banana smoothie and the breakfast. Thoroughly recommend despite the 45 min wait for breakfast

Almost made the mistake of walking past, but glad we didn't. Breakfast was great, and the pancakes were huge! Great value for money, and definitely on the list for another visit
