We went here on a recommendation and we're pleased we did. Food was great with plenty of choice. Service was excellent. We had breakfast and would happily have gone back for lunch. If you are going to the Redwoods, stop here on your way in or out.

Really friendly service. The food was varied and really tasty. I got to try some raw cheese cakes. They not only had cabinet food but a comprehensive menu to choose from as well. I cant believe I havent been before and its on my door step. Definately going back again.

Lovely Local cafe near entrance to redwoods. Delicious Benedict with salmon and hash browns. Lots of less expensive fresh pre-prepared items in the case to choose from rather than ordering off menu. Frittata, lasagna, muffins, etc... AND Dairy free, refined-sugar free avocado lime coconut cheesecake. Need I say more? Beer wine and coffee. Open til 4pm

I think we were forgotten. After a long wait desert came FIRST. Eggs benny with bacon showed up 10 minutes later. Great to have warm plates! Eggs were over done and the hash browns were soggy. Smiley staff let down by the kitchen? We'll have to try them again next time we're in town. PS. The platters looked amazing.
