Great place for brekkie! Kid friendly with children's menus. Books and toys for the kids to play with. We were there at 8.20am and the poor waitress was all by herself - serving tables and making coffees but she was friendly and very attentive! Yummy...More

Our breakfast at the cafe was excellent. We arrived soon after a large party sat down, but the sole waitress handled the orders and made the coffees expeditiously. Our "little Miss Benes" were perfection, served with a smile by aforesaid waitress. Great value!

I enjoyed the quiche which was very tasty but the cake was not up to the same standard and was disappointing. However, it might just have been the choice I made as there was a good selection available.

Lovely place. Arrived feeling cold and had staff offer to close the door and turn on the gas fire for us. The food and coffee was amazing. Eggs Benedict for my husband, and a Little Miss Bene for me. Fabulous dining experience.

We were warmly greeted by the staff despite the late lunch hour of 2 o'clock. I ordered the soup of the day which was lamb and barley, and my friend enjoyed the cauliflower salad and a flat white. We shared an artisan crafted biscuit with...More

Artisan food is homemade and hand crafted, from its inventive menu, right through to its understated home spun decor and friendly service. We have an exciting choice of creative breakfasts, brunches and lunches, along with a large selection of delicious, quick and tasty cabinet options. We're also very proud to serve Kokako fairly traded organic coffee.
