Stopped in for a snack. They have a great selection and cater well for vegetarians too. The coffee is awesome. On a sunny day its lovely to sit outside and theres plenty of tables. Must try the kahlua cheesecake. It is delicious.

We stopped here for brunch and there was a wide choice. We were both happy with our meals and the hot chocolate included a whole Sante Bar - top marks on the chocoholic scale. Nice atmosphere and plenty of tables but not too cramped. We look forward to next time.

Very popular our RiverStone Café, great staff and food - well worth the stop! They now have the coffee cart outside (awesome). The café has a coffee card which can accumulate points however you can purchase drinks and or food. Who does that!!!!

A good place to stop at when driving through town. Hot chocolates were amazing, great idea putting the chocolate bar on top. Food was pretty good too and service was quick. Big breakfast lived up to it's name and was huge! The tomato chutney was a nice touch also - very tasty

Have stopped here quite a few times when travelling north. Lovely garden setting on a nice day. Order food at counter and relax outside. Food good rather than amazing but definitely worth a stop
