“Snack”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Friendly service, they had no idea about gluten free options but were willing to let me read labels so we could find out ourselves. Food was ok, not spectacular.

“Good value for money”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The wedges were hot and freshly cooked ($5 for a good bowl full with sour cream). Hubby was disappointed they didnt have the vege pies listed but to their credit they rubbed it off their menu as soon as he pointed it out to them

“Good basic food at reasonable prices.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Food is always nice. Good home style cooking. Takeaways or eat in. We love their iced coffees, Huge! in a milkshake container and so thick. Millions of calories probably but boy they are good if you like thick creamy coffee! YUM!

“Great selection of food with the worst coffee”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

What great range of food at very reasonable prices, fresh and tasty with great service BUT Please make the coffee with a thermostat, when you don't most people boil the milk. When customers walk out with coffee and food left on the table take note something is wrong, Your food range is great, your staff smile but what terrible coffee. Oh by the way we did go back but experienced the same bad luck.
