I went for a final brunch. Didn’t have much time so bought take away whilst my companions had eaten full breakfasts which for meat dishes looked well prepared hot breakfast fare.

A variety of foods on the menu. The vegan banana cake was fresh and tasty. The power smoothie with mango and coconut oil was the weirdest smoothie I have ever tasted. It was too watery thin, with no sweetness or balance of flavour.

Expect to pay Alice Springs prices e.g. smoothie $9.50, cake slice $8.50.

Many of the staff were not friendly, even when trying to engage and be kind to them, no real eye contact or smiles. Obvious new staff working who were learning. They were completely packed, so extremely rushed.

Venues has mostly outdoor seating amongst very desert dry botanical gardens. Lovely on a fine day.

Popped in for a coffee and biscotti after a wander in the Gardens. Great little spot and a very good coffee

We found the cafe by accident and initially had a quick lunch which was lovely - fresh and interesting. Coffee is also good.
So happy we went back a second time for afternoon tea.
we liked the range of options on what is really not a huge menu.
There are fresh juices and nice looking cake options too.

My coffee was good but the steak sandwich which was very late in arriving nwas stone cold and so rare as to be nearly inedible. No apology but they did offer my money back which I refused. Won't go there again.

Had a lovely lunch here with friends recently. Bit pricey when buying for a family of 5. I spent $85 quite easily...just getting 3 toasted sandwiches, chicken burger, 1 carrot cake & 2 milkshakes. But I must admit the food was all delicious. Just a shame they cant get the meals for the table bought out at the same time. We were finished before others had even started. Maybe they need to simplify the menu to meals that can be made quicker. Staff were friendly and location is great. The Cajun chicken burger was really yummy. Looked like it was made with a homemade beetroot bun. Which tasted much nicer than it appeared with a nice spicy kick to the sauce. Wouldn't recommend it for the kids. My children all enjoyed chicken/cheese/avo toasties.
