I am sad to say that I will never return to this cafe again. I have on more than 4 occasions now received super long wait times, extremely rude service followed by the incorrect and overpriced order containing ingredients I am allergic to.

I called in for a coffee in the afternoon. The coffee tasted good, friendly staff. I would get another coffee here again next time in Lismore.

Always a good place to enjoy a healthy wholesome lunch and friendly local company as this is where the locals hang out. Lots of fresh salads and of course their specialty, pies and freshly baked breads.. all baked on the premises. Gluten free options are available !

Great little place for brekkie or just for a veggie snack. They have two floors and a buffet full of delectables. Been there a few times, always friendly and good quality.
