I visited here on a recent trip to Alexandra. Great food and coffee with super fast, friendly customer service. A lovely selection of muffins and slices. I tried raspberry and white chocolate muffin and a caramel Louise slice - really good! A friendly relaxed vibe.

The most delicious cheese rolls, and very big too! We also ordered two smoothies, one green one which was delish and a mango coconut smoothie which to be honest could’ve had more mango in it, it didn’t taste like much

Apparently the coffee at this little local is a bit hit and miss and mine was a big miss. Actually took the first one back and I was made a new one but was no better than the first - watery, weak.

A very nice cafe with friendly staff and very yummy food and coffee. I appreciated all the choices that catered for gluten free, dairy free and even refined sugar free - and these were equally yummy.

Happened upon The Tin Goose cafe by luck. Muffin and coffee each after our bike ride was the order of the day. Superb. Waitress seemed to have her own agenda but it all worked in the end.
