We had lunch there & was pleasantly surprised by the surrounding...lizards wandering around. Though not a friend of lizards, they did not bother us. The food was good. We tried their scones which were fluffy and soft, served with their own made mayo. Their special for the day, the pulled pork was very good too. Will definitely go again.

We found this place late on a Sunday afternoon when looking for somewhere to have some afternoon tea. Staff were extremely friendly, service was great and quick, was extremely happy that they had some gluten free options available and our desserts/scones were delicious. Will definitely be back here again.

We stumbled on this great tea rooms whilst browsing through an antique shop on the main road, it was in a group of shops outside the back door. Although the decor could do with some work, it was pleasant. There were two choices to sit at, inside in the air conditioning or outside undercover in a plant filled courtyard, the... More

I was recommended this place by one of the shop keepers in the main street. It was a warm day and while there is a nice leafy courtyard, I managed to snag one of the few tables inside in the air conditioning. The staff were friendly and service quick. I ordered a home-style corned beef on sourdough sandwich with cheese... More

From the moment we walked in we were greeted with friendly service - eventhough they were busy, we were directed to a table, told the lunch specials etc and we were served within 10 minutes. Had the best sweet potato quiche ever. Coffee great. Last time we were there, we had the scones with jam and cream - best ever!... More

This little hide away is in a tiny spot behind Campbell store. The staff are all friendly and delightful. The service is exceptional and food just delicious. Before you leave, the scones with fresh cream are a must.

Quality coffee and service in the fascinating hamlet of Morpeth. Much to see and do. I only had coffee here but overheard another customer comment to staff that she had just eaten the best hamburger she had ever had.

We enjoyed a late Saturday lunch at this cafe. Despite the cafe being nearly full, our club sandwich and chicken melt arrived quickly. We were entertained by the lizards running around on the outside roof - choose a seat inside if you'd prefer not to be so close to nature! Scones were fluffy and delicious (a sign claims that they...

⭐️⭐️⭐️ As we walked into the quaint cafe zone in behind the old historic store one of the owners welcomes us with a smile and 'good morning'. Once seated he recited the most popular meals on the breakfast & lunch menus (it's was brunch time!!) We sighed in awe of each meal that he explained, it was hard to choose... More
