This didn't look much from the outside but inside it is small but very cute. There are toys for the little ones including colouring in books. Lots of magazines and papers for the adults. A choice of tables or easy chairs to sit at. The toilet is very small but I am grateful they had one. The food and coffee... More

Was so thrilled to see a great local cafe pop up, and being a foodie was even happier to explore the menu - which has lots of yum and well presented items - both the cooked options from the kitchen as well as the counter food. Great coffee too! Love the avo smash / pumpkin salad / the best french... More

We have just moved to the area so this was our first visit. Very popular place, spacious and well supported by the locals. Coffee was great. Meals around us looked really good, delicious cabinet food and highly recommend the potato scone with caramelized onion and feta - a winner. Close to the movies. Top spot - recommend.

Have been here a few times as a local and always enjoyed the peanut caramel crunch slice. So delicious! Tried the almond croissant and very disappointed. Way too big with a very dry texture. Think they need to find another supplier for those! Will stick with my usual slice next time.

Good, friendly service and nice selection food in the cabinet, although almond croissant the size of a brick! Rather off putting.. (Shame as I'm usually quite partial). Great to have such a good new local cafe, shame not open on a Sunday.

We went as a big group on Christmas Eve morning, the staff were really friendly and accommodating when finding space for us all to sit. The waitress was super helpful with recommending how to make menu items vegan (the smashed pumpkin was incredible!) only rating a 4 as the woman who I payed the bill to (I think she is... More

Had a takeaway flat white and cheese & caramalised onion scone and it was honestly the best savory scone I've ever had. I'm obsessed with cheese scones, and this one beats them all. Will be back!
