Plenty of parking. It was really busy when we visited, which is always a good sign. However, hard to get a table. Long queue to order food. Vegetable panini was pretty good, wedges were average. Coffee was worth coming back for.

Reasonable food cooked with plenty of seasoning to help the modest cooking skills. The breakfasts can be large so bring your appetite. Coffee is quite good. Toilets are disappointing. Can get busy so you may need to wait for a table.

Had pukka poached eggs on toast. The toast is a bit hard to cut, service is friendly and prompt. Nice place to have a cuppa with friends .
