We have now been to the creel cafe a few times and it’s a delight each time. We’ve enjoyed both their breakfast and brunch menu and both were great. Interesting and very friendly staff- highly recommend this place!

Great food and coffee in a cafe within a tackle shop. It’s off the main road so you have to do a little exploring to find it. It’s worthwhile though. I had a flat white and the Parmesan crusted chicken schnitzel toasted sandwich with tomato,...More
