“Great food and ambience”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We visited on a busy Saturday lunchtime. There was a mouthwatering display of food, deli type, sweet and savoury snacks, and more substantial lunches. The helpings were large and the food tasted delicious. Decor is trendy and creative eg our table was a door with an overlay of dried flowers/ grasses which was then glassed over. There were colourful wall hangings. The ambience was buzzing and lively. Indeed, almost too busy and lively, since we were rather crowded at the table with little elbow room, which is the only reason I haven't given the top rating.

“Little gem”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Had supper in here on Sat night and was delighted with the food and the service. Good value too. Will definitely be back. The caramel chocolate cake was to die for.

“Best salad and chicken wrap ever”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

When you walk in here you see to your left a deli with the nicest chicken wraps going!They are huge and tasty!It is a unique cafe with books on cooking on the shelf and a small warm atmosphere.They also have a restaurant out back and they have one of the best quinoa salads I've had.

“Good food Great deserts”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We ate at the Wooden Spoon twice during our visit. The food was good, the beer was good and the deserts were great. We went back for lunch a second time and will go back on our next visit to the area.
