Visited with my family today and as someone with a severe nut allergy finding somewhere to eat can be challenging. The staff here were more than incredible in being accomodating and making sure I was able to have something. Lunch was amazing and I Couldn’t...recommend them enough!More

Highly recommend. Food was great and extremely good with our food allergies. No hesitation to assist us. Most are scared off. Thank you 😊

Pulled in here for brunch on a Saturday morning. With paths and decks clearly in need of waterblasting and other maintenance, the venue has a tired and slightly neglected air to it and the table had a slightly sticky feel. The menu looked promising, except...for the rather off-putting note on the children’s menu -clearly smaller portions of items such as pancakes etc- that only under 12s could order these. No Exceptions! This made us uncomfortable from the start as two of us are not big eaters and realised that the service-focused attitude of city cafes who will happily give you a half portion of brunch was not going to be in play here, even though they were charging city prices. Despite this, and because we had already settled the four year old into his seat, we stayed and ordered the cooked breakfast, toast and preserves and one waffles which two of us just shared. Sadly, they were not great. The waffles were dry and cardboardish, even with the addition of maple syrup. The toast and preserves was fine, with nice sourdough. The fried breakfast was okay - not the best ever but rated okay by the eater. Overall, it was not a great brunch experience for the quality of the food vs price but choices were thin on the ground.More

We booked for 11am. Showed up, it was CLOSED. Had the date and time correct, we double checked. Extremely disappointed as we were looking forward to brunch. No sign at the front explaining why. Could of at least had a call. Went to the bakery...instead which had awesome food & service - would recommend.More

Tried to come in for lunch yesterday and went inside to order. Was asked to grab a menu and sit outside so we did. Multiple waitresses walking around doing clean up and it was not busy. Yet we sat for 15 minutes and still no...one came. So we left as it was clear no one was going to serve us. Even tried changing tables in case we weren’t visible. Highly recommend going somewhere else if you would actually like lunchMore

We had both breakfast and lunch here on separate visits, both really delicious. My daughter said her chicken burger on locally baked sourdough was the best she'd ever had and my risotto was creamy and the smoked chicken melt-in-the-mouth tender. Great coffee, and such a...sunny and enchanting garden to eat and relax in.More

I always come down here for my take away coffee and breakfast in the morning - great food and amazing coffee. Also, highly recommend lunch and dinner! Take your time to sit down and relax in that beautiful garden. Friendly staff, quick and easy service.
