“Good food,service and location”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Went on the spur of the moment for lunch here and both of us had perfect tasty well presented meals served with a smile.The food is fresh with an original menu , a little bit different from the run of the mill fare available at other places in this popular "eating out" location where competition is rife. Good parking but we walked. Other end of the Mount on other side of road from Movie theatre.

“Heaps of Choices to make a foodie happy”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

A lovely option in the MT with so many choices everyone will enjoy the offerings. If you are lucky to still have fresh baked items available when you arrive grab one for they sell quickly and for good reason. The open sunny atmosphere works for small and large groups with heaps of parking around the corner. Terrific java and service, so happy to have them in the MT and bringing some unique items to the table.
