We lunched here on Monday 22nd August 2016 with some friends. My wife and I each opted for beer-battered flathead at $18.90 a plate. For the price, we expected something special but the dish turned out to be very standard fare.

We went for a late breakfast- the place was buzzing! They warned us of a 30 minute wait for our food, which was fine with us. Food was well presented and tasty. Unfortunately, both of our poached eggs were overcooked and hard, however, the flavours and presentation were lovely. Staff were lovely, and very friendly, even tho they were run... More

We are never disappointed in the variety of the menu, both food and drink. The quality always seems to be the best and the location and cafe atmosphere are great. We usually build up our appetite with a walk of The Knoll first.

Such a great surprise to walk into this fabulous restaurant. The service was above what you normally receive anywhere. Food and coffee was hot for once and presented well. They have low gluten offerings and an atmosphere that makes you want to linger longer.

Good cafe where you can sit inside or outside and your dog would be welcome too at the outside tables where water is provided for them. You can order from the all day breakfast menu as well as the lunch menu. There are good options for kids too. Our order did take a while to come and having hungry young... More
