“Excellent in every aspect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

My favourite local bakery/coffee/gourmet delights store with the friendliest staff in town! Try every quiche,cake & pie as each one is in a class of it's own. Browse through the fridge for the best hickory smoked sundried tomatoes, fresh dips & sauces. Lots of little delish gift packs on the shelves & a range of amazing bread.
A highly recommended stop :)

“Mostly good with room for improvement”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We have had a mixed experience here but for the most part it has been positive.

The bread is excellent both in quality and range. The pies are real meaty pies with good quality fillings and crisp pastry. The service friendly and efficient.

The coffee we bought once and thought was average.

On the downside we have bought pizza slices and sausage rolls where the base has been so soggy it is simply inedible. On the one occasion we were eating in I returned my sausage role (unusual for me to complain) for this very reason, whilst the woman serving did provide a refund she was incredibly rude and we refused to take our custom there for some months.

Definitely try the bread, and the pies because it's worth it in spite of the odd less rewarding experience.

“Excellent bread”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

This is more a bread shop than a cafe but the coffee is very good anyway. I particularly like the spelt loaf . This place has a lot of brunch "regulars" who appreciate the excellent friendly service. One word of warning - the bread rolls are very very heavy.
