We enjoyed the nice hot coffee, the gluten free savoury muffins and especially the large safe family area. A football field, a trolley or two, and a pedal car. Great family fun on a sunny Saturday. A special spot!

The gelato we had was divine, it was doused in a caramel sauce, yummy! We had a pie in the cafe which was scrummy too. Pleasant environment to sit back and relax.
