“Another "Must Do" while in the area”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Brilliant artists, fantastic designs and colors in the pottery. The cafe was superb, the fire was going due to wet cold weather. We enjoyed local wine again (Pinot Noir) and a fantastic pizza. The ambiance was perfect and staff were just lovely.

You can sit under the trees in the paved courtyard and order coffee or a glass of wine.The food is very tasty for lunch.An attractive pottery fountain stands in the centre of the courtyard.

“Very poor coffee”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

Unfortunately, they served a Latte with foamed milk like a Capaccino and Flat White that was bitter. The barista was clearly under-trained and although the manager tried to correct things, it just didn't get any better. A bit disappointing as the food selection was also really minimal. Seemed to have gone downhill.

“Loved the pottery!”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

The courtyard outdoor dining is very pleasant in summer and there are child friendly areas. The food was good and service was swift and friendly.

“Good for a lovely summer lunch.”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Morris and James are world renown potters and their little shady restaurant is excellent also. I little pricey and the wine list was very depleted when we went but all in all a nice relaxing spot.
