“Jewell in the Coromandal crown”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

A cafe experience couldn't be any better than this. When you walk in, you immediately feel part of the team. Staff are friendly, efficient, humorous, welcoming, everything really! Food selection is unsurpassed by any other cafe I have visited. It's fresh, interesting, tasty and beautifully presented. All in a postcard setting on the Coromandal,coast with indoor and great outdoor seating. You have to stop there - you just have to!

“Make sure you stop!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

Great coffee, great food, great service - need anything else? Try the muffins and go for the ginger, lemon and honey tea - a great afternoon treat. Couple that with friendly, happy staff and you can't go wrong.
