Tina and her team have put together an amazing experience at the Convent Gallery, the cafe is a lovely space and the galleries are well curated and full of interesting art works. The Convent Gallery is one not to miss.

There were some great paintings on display! The building itself is quite impressive in a pretty setting. There is a nice cafe with great desserts.
