“Slow Service”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Attractive looking place set back from th street. We went for coffee, which was good but the service was incredibly slow. Only go if you have a lot of patience.

“A great Gem”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

The Tin House Cafe is a little hidden gem with a mystic garden ideal for kids to explore whilst Dad relaxes over a paper and coffee. Refreshingly unique and a great chill-out spot!

Went there in November 2012. Order either taken incorrectly or prepared incorrectly. Slow response by disinterested management. Too layer back for me vthe carrot cake however was a win. Will not go again.
