Coconut milk coffee was sooo good! Great flavor and frothed to perfection :-) Great having the water available for the dog so you can stop for a coffee while out walking

Its lovely to sit outside on a sunny day and enjoy your meal. The service was very good and we all enjoyed our selected meals. The restaurant can get extremely busy over the summer months but if you pick times just before the rush hours...More

Great place to have lunch, brunch, morning or afternoon tea as they stay open a bit later than everyone else which is handy. Food is nice and staff friendly.

This is one of the towns best cafes, certainly serves some of the best coffee, nothing is too difficult. Recently we stopped in for a coffee and cake, my son ordered something from the menu which came with an odd attachment; he is glutton intolerant....More

Today's visit wasn't great. Ordered hot cakes they looked like the were bought at the supermarket and stodgy had to ask for maple syrup. No apology for not bringing it in the first place. Bitter berry sauce on the side which was really unpleasant.
