Very friendly helpful staff that directed us to a park for the kids to play at. Good coffee and the food display looked amazing, nice fresh food and lots of sweet treats.

We have been before and really enjoyed it, so when the Grab One came up, we bought it.

This time we were seated at the front of the cafe, in a rather crowded area. The entrees were great, the pate was so huge I couldn't finish it, and the Thai pumpkin soup was delicious.

However, the waiter brought me the wrong main, so while he took it away to get the kitchen to cook me what I had ordered, my boyfriend had his nachos left in front of him. So he really had to eat them rather than let the meal get cold.

It was at this point that a very large group of people arrived to see the movie. They crowded around us so much we actually had to move to the counter-stools to eat to get away from them. Very unpleasant. We ate our meal and left.

The meal was very nice but the ambiance was terrible.

Definitely recommend this one - we stopped for coffee and cake and the food was delicious. Really good fruit loaf, excellent citrus slice and good coffee and hot chocs. If it looks crowded from the street, there's another room out the back as well. $22 for one coffee, two hot chocolates, a fruit juice, two pieces of citrus slice and a piece of fruit loaf.

Years ago it used to be the local Hannah's shoe shop. Far more pleasurable in its present incarnation than being fitted for school shoes!
