We met here with some friends on a saturday before shopping. Loved the atmosphere of the place. Get there before 10 am as it got super busy. They have choices of lots of pastries- even gluten free. Was yummy. Coffees, hot chocolates and teas.

This cafe was an unexpected delight at 5pm. It does not serve food after lunch but we only wanted coffee and cookies. The children's Christmas Grotto is a delightful attraction. The menus for breakfast and lunch are very appealing.
