2 o'clock Sunday afternoon looking for a quick bite to eat. So glad we found this gem. All 3 of us had the kumara, mussel and bacon chowder and there is only one word to describe it - superb!!

Surprisingly good food and coffee for a small town restaurant. My bacon, camembert and brie pizza was delicious! Thin crust with lots of topping. Highly recommended.
