We went here for lunch, had the seafood chowder and the beef & bacon burger.
The chowder was very good, well seasoned, maybe a bit heavy on the pepper but that's a personal taste.

The burger was pretty basic but tasty. Could benefit from a bit more sauce on it. The chips (fries) served with it were great.

Will come back to taste the eggs benedict for breakfast.

We went on Sunday, seems to be the locals breakfast spot. Best service we've had in ages, as busy as they were nothing seemed a problem. Coffee was faultless as was the lifestyle vegetarian breakfast and my husband had the same but gluten free. Very relaxing, we later returned for afternoon tea

Stopped for lunch with husband and 17month old daughter. Food was delicious.Very large portions. Good value. Lots of veggies in the meat lasagna, which I loved. Very saucy and flavorful. They won't win any awards for presentation, but the food is what I'd describe as (on the healthy side) comfort food. Husband ordered falafel sandwich and he loved it.

Kids area in back is great. Would definitely go back.
