Busy place with nice surroundings. I had the mince which was very nice ( even with burnt toast)- my friend had the pancakes with maple syrup and banana which for $19 was very disappointing. Not a place to return anytime soon.

My sister had the BLT which she always enjoys and the other two of us enjoyed the Mediterranean salad. The food was great and the service... More

We saw that the cafe had recently won an award and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It didn't disappoint. We had a couple of coffees, a fluffy and slice of cake and all were very nice. Being critical the coffee had a heap of froth on it (an inch think) for a flat white but other... More

Had breakfast here today with my mother and husband. Arrived about 9.30 and got a table straight away, could choose where we wanted to sit. My husband had the salmon omelette which he absolutely loved. Mum had the French toast, savoury, she liked it but thought the bread was a bit too thick which made it a tad stodgy, the... More

Great spot lovely coffee. I had fun happy staff, great casual environment. Shame about the food ceaser salad was nothing like a ceaser, dressing tasted like it was out of a packet as well as the packet gravy on the lambs fry my farther ordered. Other than that nice spot close to motorway so easy to stop

Lovely spot - same old menu. Shame they don't add a steak or fish meal to the menu. If you are here for lunch and don't want bread or a salad then your sunk for choices really...

Another wedding over with. Stayed in Drury close to venue. Motelier recommended the Red Shed Palazzo for brekkie, so we did. A little of the beaten track, but that's what gives it's idyllic setting and charm. Various garden areas with tables, flora and fauna everywhere to give more intimacy. Great inyernal space with plenty of room. Very Jaffa rustic bohemian... More

We have been coming here for some time. The food is always good and the service pleasant. However, the last few months we have noticed the place is becoming quite dirty. There are cobwebs, bird droppings and cigarette butts that haven't been swept up making it quite off putting when eating. It would great to see this attended to so... More
