A wonderful cafe with friendly staff. Delicious modern Australian cuisine with some fab gluten free salads and cakes.

We had a delicious breakfast and there was so much variety in the menu. My husband had the eggs Benedict but it had the most delicious crumbed zucchini with a pesto hollandaise and I had the field mushroom with haloumi and poached eggs, rocket and roasted tomatoes. Highly recommend and the coffee is good.

Mixed review. Service can be a little slow, even when not busy. Irritating when young staff are ignoring customers and chatting amongst themselves. We had to wait nearly five minutes whilst they finished their chat and dance!!! The other downside is dogs sprawling in the doorway, so you cannot get through. Always very nervous about stepping over strange unknown dogs.... More

Went for lunch recently. Food was very good and service was friendly and efficient. This is definitely worth a repeat visit.

Busy place with good breakfast. Has a homewares store incorporated. Nice atmosphere, had poached eggs on toast which was done well. Do this breakfast a lot and I am fussy. Staff are busy, tried to buy something in homewares took staff awhile to figure out that item no longer available.

This local coffee shop, knick knack shop, meeting place is s local favourite. Anytime of day from early morning to late afternoon you can find something to suit everyone. Always busy but not so annoyingly crazy with people, Armchair, as it's known locally will suit all ages and even dogs are welcome to sit outside with their owners

This has been a great spot for breakfast or coffee but a recent visit was very disappointing. There seems to have been a change of management or perhaps we just hit a bad day but our last visit for breakfast left all in our party of five very underwhelmed. The service was dislocated. The five orders arrived at different times... More

Finally a coffee shop with something different on the menu. I had the cauliflower-rice salad. It was a well presented, the combination of all the ingredients worked well, the semi sundried tomato pesto was delicious. The other guests had burgers and fish and chips, they were all very satisfied with their meals. It is a great location, so close to... More

We had breakfast rather than our usual lunch yesterday. Amazing corn fritters. We always enjoy our meals here and love browsing the beautiful homewares at the same time. Recommended.
