“Well worth short detour off Hume”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Delightful cafe set in the middle of a garden nursery. Good selection of home made, fresh and tasty dishes. Cold drinks and good service. Very pleasant surroundings being in a nursery with beautiful gardens and water features. Well worth a short (couple of minutes) detour off highway if you want something better than fast food chains or servo food. Also has a cute little gift shop attached to nursery if you want a short distraction from driving.

“Amazing food, fantastic service and always fun staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We live close by and often just pop around for a Sunday lunch or arvo tea. Service is always great and the girls always make sure our kids are looked after early so we can both relax and enjoy our meals. Desserts and coffee to die for, this I what keeps us coming back.
