This is pretty much always a solid brunch choice. A quirky cafe with indoor and outdoor seating and a good selection of both menu and cabinet food. Even better, they care about ethics and social impact too.

It does get busy and tables can be in high demand but they turnover fairly fast. Coffee is good and so is the choice of savoury and sweet food. Highly recommended

Wonderful food & coffee in a gorgeous building, the cutest little store with great books and nice things and beautiful values enveloping it all in the warmest feeling.
We saw it recommended in a travel guide and would return every day if I lived locally and not in -literally- the other side of the world!
Thank you Bruce for sharing the story of its origin. Such an amazing place!

I'm a local and have visited the Co-op plenty of times. Whenever I have family visiting from out of town this is one of the places I bring them to for lunch. It's always busy and full of people from all walks of life, from family outings to business meetings. The staff here are always lovely. I love the addition of the flags for your table. The food comes out in a timely manner and the presentation is beautiful. We sat outside after a walk once with our miniature Fox Terrier and the lovely man came out to say hi and have a conversation. All the times I've been he interacts with his customers. It's the nicest environment to be a part of and has such a sense of community. The food comes in a variety of options ranging from GF to Vegan. I appreciate how the fruit and vegetables on certain dishes vary with the seasons, providing consideration for sustainable eating.

I rate this place 10/10 on environment, food and service.
