Our group of 38 guests were really impressed with this venue. Seating was arranged in a variety of rooms displaying interesting arts and crafts setting a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere. We had pre ordered scones which were cooked on the spot - yummy!! The coffees and teas were also served promptly. Congratulations

Popped in for a mid morning drink. Very impressed with the quality of coffee and a yummy soy hot chocolate which, believe me, is very hard to find. Quirky place with lots of excellent artwork to admire.

Eclectic place! Tables in different rooms with arts and crafty bits. Decor rather 70s with formica tables and leather look seats. Scone was excellent though a bit pricey at AUD9.00 with pot of tea.

Came here for lunch with a colleague as he wanted to try the scones I was a bit dubious to start but agreed. I checked out the lunch menu which was limited but some of the items sounded quite nice. I opted for the special being the satay chicken pie with fresh garden salad. The place itself is quite quirky... More

Friendly staff within this quaint cottage setting. There are many kitschy items on sale, and various places to sit in, or outside within the nice gardens, or on the verandah. The food is nice, and at a reasonable price. We really enjoy visiting this little cafe.

This is a cafe combined with an art gallery, shopfront for local artists and swcond hand book shop. The food is simple but well prepared with a huge range of teas. The art is reasonably priced and good quality second handbooks very cheap. Lovely setting as it is a converted old house so each room is a themed sitting area for the cafe.
