This cafe, located directly opposite a park, never disappoints. Coffee is always spot on, food is fresh and staff friendly and prompt. Tables are available both inside and outside. Plenty of newspapers available to read and dogs welcome. A great little spot.

One of our regular stops. Bit too noisy sometimes – some people call that “lively”. But good food, OK service and reasonable value. No reason not to go there if you’re around the area. I wouldn’t drive over especially … from interstate.
