Very busy, but good coffee & friendly staff right in town. Didn't eat there but crowded usually means good food.

for a small island, this venue was packed out, one of the best spots for lunch. Good food and coffee.

Great coffee, snacks and a good place for a meeting of like minds to sort out the world, especially sitting outside with the fat sparrows waiting for their crumbs.

Nice enough food and beverages. Pretty area and lots of seating. Found it unusual on our 2nd visit that we had to wait for 45 minutes for a sandwhich - apparently very busy.

Nice food, nice staff, however I did not enjoy the coffee. Coffee is a personal taste so I won't be down on them for that. Nice place to eat & rest.

This cafe offers a good range of foods, esp GF, with generous-sized portions. It's in the heart of the 'main town' of Burnt Pines. Popular with locals and tourists
