First day open after Christmas, under new management/systems/staff and on a market day to boot!! The team did well to manage a massive influx of customers looking for their morning food and coffee fix. The whole family had a great meal, the bacon is unbelievable and the succinct menu provides enough options for all tastes. Coffee was great and the... More

Sadly location is the only positive. Having owned 3 cafes myself and managed other peoples i understand the importance of customer service. This owner does not. Would love to support my local cafe but this last visit reminds me of why i drive on past and go somewhere else. What a shame!

This cafe has been in the area for many years and once was the thriving hub of a community. Yet since the new European owner it has become overpriced, lost the local community, and has no integrity toward providing quality customer service reflective of their prices, and in fact when questioned, was rude and dismissive, and that's not the first...

The Yum Yum Tree Cafe is a good option when in the area. Located next to the river, the seating outside on a good weather day is very nice. The food is pretty good as well, even though it is slightly pricey. Nothing too special otherwise.

I have been here before the new owners took over when the business had character and fresh visible product in the front counter. Back then I ordered the ridiculous $17 zucchini fritter stack. It was so small and un-fullfilling I said I wouldn't go back. However, with new owners I thought I would give it another chance. Walking in there... More
