This cafe has a lovely ambiance where you can sit in the courtyard under the trees and umbrellas and just chill out. The coffee was good as was the ginormous cheese scone. Recommend.

myself and two friends went to the Red Verandah as a fun catch up before christmas. The staff were brilliant, very friendly and the food was delicious. They encourage dogs, putting water bowls out for them.
