We went here about 3 years ago and had a cracking meal, so were disappointed when the lunch we had here at the weekend didn't match up at all. We tried to book but the phone did not work, and a Facebook message went unanswered....More

Can only rate based on coffee which was pretty average. Not strong enough, or smooth enough. Otherwise ok.

We haven't been here for lunch for about two years so decided to stop when travelling with a friend from the mainland. I had the ham/green steamed vegies panini. My friends had the borsch which came with fresh bread and butter. We enjoyed our meals...More

Service is friendly, food is freshly cooked and quantities are copious. The menu leans quite heavily to the vegan/ vegetarian and is nourishing rather than haute cuisine.

I enjoyed a delicious meal with my family at this cafe while visiting Cycnet for the day and really enjoyed the experience. I had the most delicious soup I have ever tasted and also loved the cosy atmosphere of the cafe. I'll be back sometime.

This venue is small but spreads outside on nice days. It offers the best coffee, delicious soup with organic bagguette and butter, also fresh made cakes and pastries to die for. Pizzas and paninis are also a favourite.
