I stopped in here for a quick lunch from the cabinet. The wrap was extremely well done, vege but very flavoursome and a rather nice flat white. Will come back again.

The flat white is very delicious and the Cream Cheese Muffin just perfect! Great place to stop and relax before or after a day of Winetasting

Quite a surprise for a small town cafe. Massive front garden area with tables and shade and plenty of room inside too. Staff are always cheerful too which makes it a nice place for a cupper.

Always have breakfast here when staying at Watson's Way Guest Lodge just down the street. The ladies are charming and Chef makes definitely the best Eggs Benedict I have tasted in many spots around the globe.
