Dropped by for a quick eat with my partner. Our blat and cheeseburger were fresh, tasty and really quite nice. Our coffee was beatiful. It made for a very tasty impromptu lunch. The team were super welcoming and it was a warm atmosphere. 10/10

Okay coffee. Average food. Can be very hot in this cafe during the warmer months. Nothing special but nothing bad either.

The décor is rustic and contemporary and there are a lot of little touches to make patrons feel comfortable, but the food is only average.

Chose to have breakfast here based on positive reviews and high rating on Trip Advisor as we were travelling through and not familiar with the area. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was very ordinary. Egg choice restricted to fried or scrambled - who doesn't offer poached eggs? The sourdough toast was burnt to a crisp and subsequently impossible to cut. I'm... More

Very good coffee but presentation of breakfast meal was rather ordinary. My partner's granola was short of fruit having only 2 small strawberries and 5 blueberries. Would have loved to agree with the other reviewers as staff and service were excellent.

We had a quick breakfast here while visiting friends. Food was tasty and the staff friendly and welcoming. Our toddler enjoyed the blackboard on the wall and small area out back to stretch her legs. We also appreciated the nappy change area with various complementary supplies. Would visit again.

This place makes the best coffee when you a dance mum that needs a strong coffee before a long day of hair, makeup, costumes and dancing.
