This little cafe is in a nice quiet area of town with plenty of free parking, you can sit inside or outside - weather depending. There is lots of nice home cooked food for all - especially the date scones mmmm & a coffee ☕️ there is a small grassed area for children to play safely. Enjoy!! The Happy Traveler... More

The bakery delights from the cabinet are exquisite! Louise slice almost as good as my long deceased mother made. Tea made in a filter pot and for my wife the coffee was excellent. Menu looks appealing for a longer visit in the future.

Great staff, service, food, play area - such a great start to our trip up north. Funky decor and easy to move around in, relaxed and fun.

Popped in for late lunch. Pancakes were good. Coffee was cold. Milkshakes not great flavor. Mushroom and chicken pasta was lovely. Atmosphere simplistic. Table was sticky and no clean cutlery. Water tasted old and earthy. Overall cost to retry good. Will return.

So nice to have home cooked rather than mass produced food. We only had a muffin and a coffee, but man that must be one of the best muffins I have ever had. The rest of the cabinet food looked awesome too. I can't wait to go back!

Had the French toast and it was lovely. All the food looked good in the cabinets as well. Hubby enjoyed his as well. Friendly service. Luke warm coffee but nice setting and I do recommend.

We waited 20 minutes for takeaway chicken burgers, they were just flattened chicken thighs on buns and were still pink in parts. For $9.00 a burger we expected something a bit more gourmet - very disappointing meal and we wont be back.

I was terribly disappointed at the service and quality of food served at this cafe. The coffee was burnt and the "hot" meal came out cold. It took over an hour to cook a steak sandwich and we and another table were the only ones in the cafe at the time. Sorry but I will not be going back

Over a few years we have dined here a number of times but probably won't go again. My mushrooms on toast came as a mushroom quiche! When I did get the meal I ordered, it was fairly tasty. My wife's steak sandwich was laden with onion which spoiled the taste. Her coffee was slathered with chocolate topping - a real... More
