We came here before the movies - it was a wet, miserable day and we wanted something warm for lunch. Found plenty of delicious food on the menu and in the cabinets - and heaps of Gluten Free/Vege options too. Meals were pretty big -...coffee was good - came away very happy :-)More

Thanks Dawn and Tina for a great breakfast. Loved the interior with your mix of textures in the woods and plants. The cabinet food on display looked amazing I was very tempted:-). Dawn was a delight - cheerful, smiley and helpful. Well done for an...awesome experienceMore

Food is delicious, especially the mushrooms on ciabatta, which was golden and gorgeous. OMG mouthwatering and tasty. That was the first days brunch on a glorious Sunday. The next afternoon was a late afternoon visit and had a scrummy Louise slice, the following morning was...mushroom and bacon filo with salad. I could eat here every day for a month and probably have the same thing twice. Staff are fabulous, very attentive and happy. Cafe is a busy place all day, service is superb and the coffee was spot on. Definitely would eat there again.More
