We visited on a beautiful sunny day and were seated immediately. The menu is simple and reasonably priced. Service was very friendly and our meals arrived in no time at all. A well run cafe. Happily revisit.

Awesome place for Family lunch and/or fun game at the mini-golf. Plenty of options on the menu, and serving size will surely make your tummy happy. Best of all, lovely staff service. Will come back no doubt.

Great location and food and building and staff but coffee always weak and disappointing. I have often heard from others "I have never had a good coffee there". Business will improve if you make a nice strong coffee

Although very busy, staff were prompt to help and serve, always with a smile. Always enjoy my meal. As I've dined here quite often and always enjoy the atmosphere and meal, I am wishing they would change the main menu.
