Lovely ambience and very welcoming. Potential to be great but we were a little disappointed with the food. Soft poached eggs only had half the white cooked (which I appreciate some may like) and the scrambled eggs with tomatoes didn't actually come with any tomatoes.

A great place to stock up on health food, have a coffee and chat with the locals. Great atmosphere and beautiful sunny courtyard out the back. Thanks Elaine for creating such a special place in St Marys

Great cafe with lots of choices of healthy food, friendly staff. You can also buy all your health food needs - an extensive range. A relaxing spot to have coffee to sit in the window and watch the scenery or outside at the back on the lawn under an umbrella.

Locals come here for bulk food, great coffee, and good food. Blend in! Stop by, grab a coffee or a chocolate, order from the delicious menu (I had a mocha and a vehicle wrap, both delicious), grab more items to go (soup, cake), buy some nuts or muesli too! Friendly staff too.

Excellent food, great service, we found this cafe by sheer chance as it is in a side street, what a great surprise. We would highly recommend this cafe/restaurant

What a find - delightful little store with all kinds of interesting products - and wonderful food and excellent coffee. Friendly owner is most helpful and her signature rhubarb cake is not to be missed. The soaps she sells are really nice too - we will be ordering a few more.

A wide array of dishes amidst a plethora of organic produce. Picked up some pepper berry which is apparently scarce due to the gin producers using it in their concoctions.
