“A fantastic find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We went here for lunch on a whim as our fave cafe up the road was shut. It was very crowded and we waited a little while for our food but it was worth the wait. The food was absolutely fresh and delicious, the cheese was amazingly good. There was a constant stream of customers buying gelati - so we had some too - absolutely divine! I will be returning here!

“Must have icecream.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Went to Montville smaller branch. It was a cold day but still enticed by great selection of ice cream. Friendly staff member offered free taste so couldn't refuse and then we couldn't resist to order . Delicious.

“Long wait”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

The food was fine when it arrived, we ordered and then it took 30 minutes for the coffee to arrive followed 10 minutes later by the soup and bagel, no apology. we ordered at 2.20pm so after any lunch time rush we ate at 3.00pm. Not happy.

“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

On returning from Noosa we wanted a quick but nutritous lunch. What we received exceeded our expectations in terms of presentation, volume, and quality coupled with excellent service. We will be back to try the dinner menu.
