We had salmon on potato cake (so glad it wasn't fried), full size, and 3 hot flaps pancakes. Both were delicious! Coffee was great. Service was lovely, both barista/manager and young girls serving us. Very pleased with our breakfast!

Stopped in to the Groove Kitchen for espresso, ended up also having the most excellent lunch. Espresso was so good, I had to have two. They offer a short or a long pull... highly recommend the ultra-smooth short pull; not much volume, but soooo good....More

Came here for breakfast after the winery tour, the food was absolutely outstanding, and looked amazing on black plates, the service was quick and extremely friendly, and the coffee was superb. Will be back next time I'm in town.
