We have patronized this restaurant for years and it is still the best place for lunch I know.
Good range of tasty and appealing cabinet food which can be served with a delicious salad. The desserts are delicious but I'm usually too full after my main to partake. Great place for morning or afternoon tea with a good range of coffees, teas etc. There is a pleasant outdoor dining area, lovely on a sunny day.

Morning stop for coffee prior to work, so takeaway coffee. Coffee beans from Hummingbird. Coffee temperature and flavour was OK.
