“Nice bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

It's a well located spot. Good for brunch / lunch. Nice selection of sandwiches and bigger meals. The only thing is it can get very busy. Best to go early or a little latter in the day. Good spot though.

“Breakfast with the locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

If you want to enjoy a great all day breakfast served by a friendly welcoming team, then Dench is the place to go. Always bustling it is worth the wait, and John and the team will always make sure that you are taken care of.

This is a true local favourite, with the regulars lining up to enjoy a "Dench fix". There are a number of tables outside so it is a great spot for those who like to take their dog out for coffee of brunch.

The specials menu changes on a regular basis, and the main menu is updated every few months, although you can always get the core meals such as eggs anyway you like them.

“exceptional coffee and cakes as well.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

This is a very inauspicious cafe in Scotchmer St - little signage at all.

When you enter you quickly realise why - it is full of the locals who all now about it.

The cafe is a two fronted shop with cafe on left and baker shop on right - although seats are available in both.

They have a greta range of food and their coffee was the best I have had in this area - by a long shot - the barista was an artist.

Even had a glass of water b=ought to the table prior to the coffee arriving
