Our local favourite. Very pleasant operators who go the extra mile to satisfy. Lovely salads, great coffee, homemade real food. Good menu board selection. Well priced, value for money.

We have been regular customers usually having up to 15 in the group. Today service was terrible after eating breakfast and waiting over an hour for coffee we got our money back. Takeaway coffees all served before us. You have lost our custom.

A great little Cafe with a good variety of menu items on the right hand side wall (I missed it the first time). They offer interesting items for kids such as Vegemite and cheese mousetraps and any cafe that does Mince on toast with poached eggs is worth patronising. They do great gluten free Pumkin and Morrocan spiced risotto balls... More
