This is my favorite place for breakfast, but make sure you get there before 12 as their menu changes! Cabinet food is also lovely and their in-house made salad dressing is unparalleled! I always buy a bottle to take home when I am there.

Thank Ftloi

Thank you for your review. The Passionfruit Vinaigrette is simply the best, people use it on their meat instead of a sauce as well. A must have in the fridge. That and our Peach and Capsicum Chutney, yum.

Nice place to sit down and have a coffee and something to eat. Chocolate factored is an added bonus.

It is nice to be able to sit and relax in our surroundings. With nice trees and gardens, to be in good company enjoying a coffee, a little something to eat, topped off with yummy chocolate. Sounds like Bliss. Thank you for your review

the best iced chocolate I have EVER had. Nice lunch too. Chocolate factory and museum worth a few minutes of your time. Definitely a place for chocolate lovers.

Thank you for your review. You are right regarding the Iced chocolate, we have people visiting from around the world who ask for either the Iced Chocolate or Iced Coffee, both are just Yum, just as you described it.

With 30 different fudges, it must have been hard to choose. My favourite is the licorice fudge. I am also made keen on our chocolates, not bad after nearly 18 years. Thank you for your review, you will have to drop by again soon.
