Hi Darlene, we're sorry the cafe didn't meet your expectations. Unfortunately with varying traffic at the mill (particularly on weekdays), the cafe couldn't support full-time staffing, so we converted it to a self-serve model offering a variety of beverages, light lunches and scrumptious treats from...More

A different kind of of place to be - full of artworks for sale. It was a short visit to truly appreciate or even just to enjoy the artworks displayed in the mill. All we can say is “we have to come back here”.

This place is great for art lovers. Many artists use this space for their working studios. A good bistro, galleries, museum and artistic boutiques as well, all rolled into a historic old mill. Just lovely! Highly recommended.
