Feeling a bit peckish we decided on a light lunch of Falafels and salad washed down with a fresh fruit/vegetable juice. Well worth it as the food was delicious and the service was great.

The location is great but thats it. We have been there for a soft drink and coffee on a Saturday, it wasn't busy but 6 tables were not cleaned the whole time we were there. Staff should be trained to be more attentive in cleaning the tables. !!!! It looked very messy. This Cafe might be good for a drink,... More

How can a business owner be as rude on arrival? We almost walked away... a table of 11 persons comes in on saturday before lunch in a quiet restaurant and the owner barked at us because we moved one table. We didn't escalate the incident and just wondered if we should stay. The consequence of it: we only ordered drinks... More

Was recommended to visit this cafe for breakfast however after seeing the prices i was hugely dissappointed and only drank a coffee which took some time to arrive and my partner had a coffee and a pineapple juice which was clearly out of a container and not fresh. Somehow the downturn in their business - I can't say is due... More

Early Sunday breakfast was relaxed, the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Meals were quite large, very fresh and tasty. The only downfall was the coffee; very weak even though we requested "a strong" coffee.

My husband and I and our son visited the cafe after touring the gardens and found the atmosphere pleasant but we were very disappointed with the food. I ordered a salmon with cream cheese and capers foccacia which arrived without the cream cheese but with melted Swiss cheese on it. This clearly was not what was written on the menu... More

With a fresh and tasty range of food and drinks, this is a popular venue for couples and families. Set amid tropical trees and foliage, the atmosphere is relaxing. A big favourite on the menu is the eggs benedict with smoked salmon - delicious!

We stopped at this cafe after completing the blue arrow hiking trail. The location & the ambience of the cafe was extremely relaxing after the long hike. We tried their local ice cream and mixed fruit ice lollies and they were extremely refreshing.
