Beautiful little cafe with nice outlook. Little blankets on the chairs and the staff were lovely. Coffee and cake were both delicious but I recommend sharing the cake as the serving size was huge!

Our cycle group stopped here for morning coffee - smart cafe with nice outdoor area. Service and coffee were good, but only a few had the cakes (probably due to price).

The service was quick & friendly. The food choice vast and each dish we had was tasteful, nutritious and presented beautifully. We had to taste each others meal as it all looked so great. The portion sizes were fantastic.

I was really impressed with how polite and kind the staff we’re as well as the service being above average. My salad was absolutely delicious, this is probably one of the best cafés I’ve been to. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

My salad was delicious and the other luncher enjoyed his croissant. The shared cake with good coffee was very good. Unadventurous eaters would need to choose from the breakfast menu, or from the croissants. Staff were pleasant and efficient.

Pricing around $19 but more cafe food. They need to reconsider their menu choices as it reads more restaurant, but doesn't meet the mark. Yes, pricing does indicate that, but make choices and do it well not half/half. More staff over xmas would be good....More
