Loved finding this quiet spot within easy walking distance from the hospital. The food was excellent and a nice selection on the menu. The hibiscus tea is refreshing on a hot afternoon too.

We love this place. The selection of food both vege and vegan is amazing. Everything on the menu balances nutrition really well. Food is well cooked and delicious. Even my carnivore husband loved everything he had and didn't complain once that he was still hungry☺️

We were in town over the weekend, and in the summer too, so the whole town was very, very quiet. Longbranch's was quiet too, although not deserted. It was a pleasant, relaxed breakfast, with a couple of tasty cookies for the road. The omelette was...More
