I really like going to here to relax on my own and have a cup of tea! They also do excellent smoothies and the staff are always friendly

Visit to yellow house for lunch was awesome! Delicious food, friendly staff (Pete is always amazing). Coffee is nice and the atmosphere is relaxing. Yellow house has definitely regained some if it's former glory!

Lovely place to dine or just have a coffee, with privacy if you should require it. Food is very nice and coffee divine

I and friends have been here on many occasions, always friendly, busy and clean. The meals have been of good size. The Yellow house is a TREAT not an everyday outing.

Found it quite expensive but the food was nice. Service was average. Took a little while for the food to be served but it was quite busy.

Went here because of good trip advisor review. Lunch with my elderly parents on a busy Sunday lunchtime. Lots of choice with toasted sandwiches a hit and great coffee. Carrot cake and chocolate tart beautiful. Helpful and friendly service. 4 people for $55 is good...More
