My granddaughter and I had a lovely tea and cake outing to celebrate her birthday. The cheesecake was absolutely wonderful and the service great. The previous day Christa baked us a birthday cake on very short notice and this to was very nice and beautifully decorated

Sadly I have to add my name to the others who will not be going to this restaurant again. I chose it to take my husband to for a Valentine's Day breakfast because it looked so charming. Instead of having one of the amazing-looking cakes he chose the Eggs Benedict and I chose the French Toast, which is served with... More

I ordered a cappuccino and mom ordered a Grapetizer, it took forever, then my order arrived alone, we had to remind the waitress of the Grapetizer and even after that it took an inordinate amount of time to arrive at the table. The manageress asked... More

We were recommended to come to this small bakery for its cheesecake. It did not disappoint we had s caramel and a classic cheesecake. Both were creamy and delicious. Were stopping off if you fancy cake or pastries. The selection of other cakes looked great.

Quaint little bakery offering a wide range of freshly made baked goods, cakes and sandwiches. We had a great Banting Cheesecake, Fresh warm Scone and iced coffee. The cheesecake was delicious, not heard of the Banting diet before but preferred the idea of a nut flour and the hostess recommended it, I was not disappointed. Even had to take a... More

A quick stop for morning tea. Bagged one of 2 tables. Funny bar like seating for the rest. Might be tricky for an older client.Amazing selection of cakes and cheesecakes seem to be the order of the day. Seems owner managed. Good staff and seamless service.

My husband and i tried the Lemon meringue and the milk tart. The lemon meringue was ok....tasted very eggy and the base was incredibly thick. The milk tart on the other hand was delicious! I loved the use of almond essence in the filling, it gave it a very unique flavour. All in all a good experience and great service!
