Read a review of this place so jumped out the door to try it out. Wow....we were NOT expecting THAT! It was easily the single best coffee we've ever had and that's saying something coming from Australia's great coffee culture. The design, decor and layout...More

Coffee and carrot cake in a calm, unhurried setting. Lovely location overlooking the river. Not an extensive menu but you should find something.
