Great food eaten in a lovely place. Cafe is an old converted house. Pizza, salads and breakfast fare. Staff friendly. If you hungry or just need a hot coffee don’t miss Carnegies.

Food was generally good although the salads were loaded with too much red onion as everyone seems to these days. The service however, was terrible. In a group of 10 people, my meal never showed up. Everyone started theirs and I went up to query...where mine was. I was told it was coming. No apology or acknowledgement that they’d forgotten it. When our group had finshed their meals, still no sign of mine. When I queried it again, calmy and politely, I was rudely told to chill out its on its way. A tip to Carnegies, if you stuff up, own it and apologise - don’t make your problem the customers. You’ve lost a customer and any recommendations from me - I’ll be telling my 10 people of the rude service.More

Beautiful food - the ribs were nothing short of astounding, the nori salmon was divine,and the fries were outstanding. Really friendly and efficient staff too. Was once the town's library and retains many original features, including beautiful timber flooring. Open on Monday nights, which is...a bonus. Would absolutely recommend 😊More

Lamb rack was delicious! My wife and I walked in on a busy Saturday night with no booking. We only had to wait 10 mins for a table. Our order was quickly taken and the meal didn’t take long to arrive at all. The lamb...was delicious! We’ll be backMore

You're asking other reviewers here so not the restaurant itself...you could Google the menu.. That's what I'd do
