“A new favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Not only does the friendly staff do great coffee (and iced coffees for those hot days) they do the best hot chips - hand cut, fresh and crunchy - perfect! My daughter was very impressed.

“great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

I went here for lunch today and am very happy with the service and the meal. I had a vegetable filled filo wrap which came with salad and a sweet chutney for about $14. It is quite nice sitting inside and next time I will try one of their marvelous looking cakes.

“finally tried it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I have been hearing about this place off and on for sometime but always the ones i was with wanted to go elsewhere. finally for my friends birthday brunch i talked her into going...what a lovely relaxing and well laid out restaurant/cafe. The food was lovely and well presented and the staff were very easy to talk to and willing to help in any way. I had a sandwhich, a muffin and a slice with a pot of herb tea. Our pots of tea came with a timer so we knew when they were ready to be poured. I was a bit confused about the water glass we were to have our tea in till I realised they were double glazed as such and not hot to hold at all and lovely to drink out of. We have decided we would like to return here at some stage with perhaps our husbands for an evening meal

“Breakfast of Champions!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Lovely place my husband and I stumbled across in search of a late breakfast. Absolutely delicious and definitely NOT your average bacon and eggs. Brilliant service and amazing food! Highly recommended.
