My favourite place to go for breaky in samford. The potato hash cakes are the best. It has such a relaxed and inviting vibe and the food is the best. Definitely worth a visit!

Had dinner there, sat on verandah, good atmosphere, entrees $16, but only had main meals, which were $32 each. We also ordered 2 sides, however meals were quite large and we did not eat all the food. The stuffed chicken was delicious but the Moroccan lamb shank was ordinary

The cafe is beautiful and in a lovely quiet spot. We had plenty of room for the whole family and received a warm welcome. The food was near perfect, delicious and prompt. The coffee was also great. Would recommend.
