“Dogs are customers too!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We had breakfast here on Sunday and our two dogs were greeted and treated SO well! They were welcomed and looked after by two of the nicest wait staff! And breakie was great too! Good facilities, fabulous location, terrific meals. And did I mention there was a sensational range of gluten free meals and cakes??!!

“Lovely food, nice views!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Came here for brunch with a group for a birthday.
First nit-pick would be the table that we were given, it was squished awkwardly against a wall with poles separating the chairs, it was a just awkward and a bit uncomfy.
We came in time for the breakfast menu, which was lovely with quite a few selections available, all the meals were cooked well, very tasty, and reasonably priced!
Not really any level of service, you order at the counter if you want something, the staff were friendly, helpful, and quick - the food came out quite quickly, and even though everyone ordered separately, pretty much all came out at once! The plates were cleared away in good time when everyone had finished eating.

Lovely for a weekend breakfast, or for stopping for a coffee after a walk around the river

“Pleasant water view from cafe, food was good”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Went there with family for lunch for the first time. Only two courses were available for order that day, - open chicken sandwich and fish&chips. Food quality was good but it took awhile for the orders to arrive. Venue location was pleasant with water view. Fairly nondescript service, though.

“Rude Customer Service When You Get Some-One”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Went there this morning with friends for breakfast. Scenery lovely and with correct people running the venue would be a great place.
When we arrived only another table occupied. Three staff just stared at us including I would say the owner (male)... we seated ourselves and eventually asked if we wanted menus...we then realised you go up and order. Mine was easy but my friend mid sentence forgot hubbies order she said sorry mind blank...now most people would laugh or say something like we all have them etc not who this person (again we presume owner as he then entered into a meeting after serving us) he says so what do you want.
Coffee came big delay in the two orders coming out despite ordering together...when my hubby asked again same male for sugar he stared at hubby and after a two minute pause points to sugar to the left of hubby. Really you think that is acceptable....
Food came - Was OK food...but then it took us after 45 min of empty plates being on our table to ask a waiter to clear our table...again done in stages...
What also amused us was the staff moping / scrubbing the floor whilst customers are trying to walk in the cafe...surely you do this prior to the cafe opening - nothing had been spilt.
Overall poorly run cafe that we won't visit again which is a shame because as noted above with the correct staff would be a great place...
If you don't mind poor to rude service with average food then visit here...but we won't return until new owners...

“Nice lunch with great company”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We Had a nice lunch fish and chips and salad. KSW beef burger and Lemon spiced chicken salad. All very nice but not the best we have eaten. Baby chino was great, atmosphere perfect, view perfect. Small and cosy and as one staff member said she had the best office in the world, I would agree within that. Recommended for all.
