Cool place to have a meeting or catch up with friends. Very family friendly (even gave the dog a homebaked dog bikkie) facilities and welcoming staff. Lovely and spacious, inside areas, outdoor tables and a nook for smokers around the back... well done guys

We stopped for a light snack there a number of times whilst coming back from fishing over a week long period. Lovely coffee, yummy cabinet food and nice staff. Great to see that they appear to have stopped that ridiculous surcharge for take away coffee.

Stopped while traveling for a snack. Very good food and drink with friendly service. Choice of food a bit different, but very nice. Right on the road. You cannot miss it as you drive north from Thames.

This small, friendly cafe on the beautiful Thames Coast Road is worth the drive. The pizza is superb, we had the gluten free base an it was delicious. The staff are super friendly. It is no wonder this place is always so busy.
