My daughter and l really enjoyed our first visit here yesterday for lunch. Various seating options either inside, out in the sun, undercover on the deck or close to the kids playground. I had the chimichanga which was delicious, my daughter had the the egg and bacon roll, good coffee as well. Service was friendly and prices are what you... More

Starting with the good: the coffees that arrived and the breakfasts were good value (decent serving size and quality) and the outdoor seating with the playground was shaded by trees and well equipped for children while giving the grown ups some space. The not so good: there was a multitude of European wasps (one of us got stung), the cafe... More

We visited Tulips for lunch on a Saturday. We had ordered food for my husband, 10 month old baby and myself and were waiting for it to be delivered. To keep our baby happy we were feeding her some strawberries that we had bought with us when one of the staff came to our table to tell us that even... More

Went for lunch with friends to Tulips today and none of us will waste our time going there again. We waited an hour for our food to be served (even though people who arrived after us got served their meals before us). And when our food was finally brought out one person's meal did not arrive. The waiter was very... More

I've been to Tulips Cafe for breakfast a couple of times now and it's a great little find. The service is a clincher for me, and I found the staff were very welcoming, relaxed without being sloppy, and delivered a good experience. I've enjoyed both of my breakfasts there and the garden setting, out the back and separate from the... More

Australia Day lunch was a massive disappointment, the meal took a long time to come and the gourmet burger was very dry and over cooked. The Thai beef salad comprised of 3 slices of roast beef and a very non Thai salad.

This is the perfect place for the whole family, there are child proof security gates with kiddy see-saw and little play huts for the young while the grand parents can browse around the garden shop admiring the beautiful plants and pots on offer, There is an small aviary with some colourful birds if you need the extra entertainment. Very handy... More

The gate is double locked to keep kids in and there is a good little playground including a large cubby house, slide and rockers. However, don't be concerned, old people. Go through the cafe and there is a lovely outdoor area where parents with children are less likely to congregate. Happiness all round! For less than $35, two adults and... More

Not exactly generous. The milkshake wasn't chocolataty, the fish looked like a kids meal. Service was good though. Coffee needed to be hotter.
