Good lunch - nothing spectacular but it did the job and the hollandaise was really good. Spinach and Ricotta cannelloni was a bit dry and overcooked - coffees were "ok"

Good coffee. Nice place to stop while out driving. Service staff could maybe smile and pretend to be happy to be there, that was the only downside. Maybe they were just having a busy day? We got there about an hour before it closed.

The three of us had an awesome breakfast. Excellent quality and plenty of it. Lovely location with trad jazz playing in the background. Only the coffee let it down so not 5 stars. Will come back next time.

We did not eat, so I can't comment on the food. The flat white had a pretty enough design that I posted a photo on FB. The coffee was very full bodied. I thought $4.50 a cup was a little expensive, but we needed to...More
