To this end, skilled professionals create our food and beverages on the premises, as far as is practicable, from scratch. We use high quality ingredients, locally sourced where possible, resulting in food and beverages with exceptional flavour which we are proud to offer and certain you will enjoy. Additionally, we continually strive to operate in the most ethically sound manner possible. Winners of Restaurant and Catring SA Awards for excellence, Best Cafe/Restaurant 2015
