A great setting. Dog friendly cafe with water bowls provided outside. We ordered a coffee each and a scone and slice. When our coffees came out there was also a dish with four dog biscuits for my dog! Friendly service with great home baked goods...More

Had brunch at Wetlands on 8 February and the pancakes were like cardboard and tasteless. Had to wait 40 minutes for coffee and water which didn't help. Will not be having breakfast here again. Was very disappointing since we like to try new places.
