“Tucked away but worth looking for......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

The day was hot and steamy as you would expect in January so it was a delight to sit down to a cool, fresh and absolutely beautiful salad. The flavours were great and when you use local fresh produce you can't go wrong. I have always found in my travels that it is often the simple foods that bring the most pleasure.
It might have been a hot day but that does not mean you don't have a cup of coffee and what a great cup of coffee it was. I have found that coffee in new towns and new coffee houses is like Russian roulette... it can be very hit and miss. Fortunately this time it was great. The pleasant surprise with this little cafe was that the prices were not unreasonable either considering we were there at a busy time of the year. Definitely worth a visit. JUst a pity it was not big enough to have a few tables inside the air conditioned area.

“Great Coffee”

GREAT coffee right in the centre of town. The staff are always awesome and friendly and happy to see you. The lunch menu is great (fresh rolls, sandwiches, salads, muffins) as well as a great deli section full of local treats & goodies. Check it out :)

“The salad roll from heaven.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Was looking for some real food the other day and came across this little hidden treasure called taste on Macrossan. First were the staff, who had very warm smiles and were truly welcoming when l walked in. The next thing was the food a vast array of beautiful made from the heart delights. I ordered what l thought was an ordinary salad roll but when l took that first bite l could actually taste every individual bit of salad in that roll as though it had been grown naturally in the owners back yard and the other pure delight in that roll was the home made mayo, made from someone with the love of fine tastes. It was, a heavenly salad roll, l felt enlightened after l ate it and so now l will go forward and spread the good word about the heavenly delights that come from taste on Macrossan.

“Lunch time treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We managed to tear ourselves away from the pool long enough to get take-away ciabatta sandwiches. The staff were friendly and helpful. Lots of local produce stocked in the shop.
