Service, decor and food was amazing. I would certainly eat at this cafe again. There was even a play area for children. Highly recommended - pricing similar to other cafes.

The food was so nice, scrumptious. Staff ultra friendly and as we were having to discuss business were able to at a corner with a larger table .. Every one so friendly. A terrific assortment of foods.

Worst nachos I've had in a while.Just chilli flavoured mince over tortillas. No beans, no sauce. Fresh salsa on top was good.
