This cafe supports those with autism and sometimes has employed people who need support to intergrate in a workplace (though I’m unsure about whether this is happening right now). It’s non profit making with proceeds going to authism. Even so, the staff are happy, friendly...More

A marvellous cafe with a great range of coffee teas and pastries. The service is amazing and the staff great. Sometimes the card payment machine wont connect to the internet. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated.

I love this cafe. Relaxed and airy and supporting Autism Initiatives. The coffee is good. The service is prompt and the prices are reasonable. But the main draw are the cakes- amazing. And the Atkinson is pretty good too!
