We stopped off for lunch at this rather unassuming looking restaurant for lunch. It was the perfect spot on a warm day, overlooking the St John river. Our order was for sandwiches/paninis and we expected simple refueling food. The quality was great, freshly prepared and really tasty, a lovely surprise!

The food itself was actually quite good, how ever I didn't enjoy the atmosphere of the. The service wasn't great, but the food made up for it. The restaurant does lack in special forms of coffee like latte or espresso. The value wasn't great a normal sized sandwich but didn't come with a side ex salad, the price was $12.50.

weekend brunches are great - flair, style and a myriad of flavours in a charming decor on the riverfront - a hidden gem snuggled in the upper valley
