My wife and I enjoyed a very delicious lunch at this quaint restaurant. The fish cakes and chicken wrap were delicious as was the recommended Icebrg draft beer. Highly recommend if looking for a restaurant with a relaxed casual atmosphere, good food and friendly staff.

Hi gola350! Thanks so much for your review! You're correct: it is a well-loved old heritage building, built in 1895 and lovingly restored by the current owners of the building. Hope to see you back soon! Kelly

The soups were very good, and the desserts yummy. While the sausage roll and sandwiches tasted good, I guess I was hoping for them to be a bit more wonderful. Nice place to get a meal overall. Would recommend.
