Love going to the Yellow House Cafe, great tea selection and delicious food. Eggs Benedict with Salmon today, perfect! Great seating, staff always lovely and helpful. Yum selection of cakes, had to take a blueberry and lemon loaf home for afternoon treat - so good!

This place is always humming. Have been here twice, once on a weekend and once during the week. Both times it was busy. Food and service was great on both occasions thanks.

Mostly friendly staff but very slow service, over 30 min wait for two simple dishes. Coffee was finished before food was anywhere in sight. Coffee was pretty good and the cross cut fries were Devine. Vege stack was a disappointment and looked more like a...More
