“Quirky, but good for vegetarian and gluten-free snacks”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Great coffee, great service, good recommendations for what to eat. Not a huge menu, but imaginative (e.g. interesting jaffle fillings - made fresh on ordinary or gluten-free bread). Not all the seats are comfortable, but that adds to the quirky charm. Time to avoid: when the high school students opposite rush in for their lunch!

“Hidden gem! ”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Such a lovely and trendy spot to have coffee! The decor is bright and contemporary, with a gorgeous little shop adjoining it where you can buy loads of local art, jewellery and more. The coffee here is always divine - so strong and rich.

Service here is super friendly, the staff are always smiling and polite. The staff are stars! Plus it's super quick service. Limited parking is available on the main highway but there's always spots off the side streets. Take away available or you can sit in the cafe or outside. Definitely worth a visit! Fantastic!

“Impeccable Coffee & First Class Services”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

This locally run trendy Cafe is a great spot to grab your morning coffee, a bite for lunch or to catch up with friends… Always friendly & always consistent, what a better way to start, spend or end your day!?!

If you are a self-proclaimed “Coffee Connoisseur” and believe life is too short for bad coffee, do yourself a favor, check this place out. :)
