The cooked breakfast was good, the chicken Caesar wrap was soggy & I wondered whether it had been made the day before. We were there not long after the cafe opened and the counter choices were limited. Coffee was acceptable.

We enjoyed our vegetable quiche, which was a good size, but the side salad was piteously small for $4.50. The plates were long and narrow, which made them awkward for eating on. Had a very nice ambience and a beautiful location.

Hi Browncarrs, Thank you for the review. We apologise for the small side salad, we try to offer value for money so will endeavour to do this better.
