Visited twice for evening meal and found everything very good. Most places in town seemed chaotic but the location gave this one a more peaceful atmosphere.

We had lunch here yesterday, and our waitress was so friendly and patient, she was great! Also really enjoyed my stack of pancakes, although that seems to be an odd choice for lunch :)

We had a lovely meal here. We shared a plate of two lamb shanks for 27 dollars-really delicious and good value. Friendly staff .

We really wanted a salad, so stopped in and got big green salads to go. They were exactly what we wanted. Staff was friendly and efficient. The different seating areas were cute and fun inside and out, and the wifi was free and fast. Great spot.

It was OK but expensive for what was ordered. Price was on the menu so I only have myself to blame but I expected more. No table service and staff seemed to be going through the motions. I think there are better options.

Most places had wait times of 20-40 minutes ... now I know why this place didn't. Service was bad, food was just plain awful, so bad I couldn't eat mine (and I'm a guy that will eat about anything!). The soup I ordered never came. My wife's was OK, not good, but at least edible. The best they could do... More

I came here for a business meeting and the people at the counter and the ones serving us were very rude. We could tell the whole vibe was very negative and it was making us uncomfortable. We were not able to use the plugs, there was no toilet paper and we felt very uncomfortable.

Came here for a coffee and to upload some photos to my laptop. The waitress didn't even look up at me as I asked for a chai latte and then when I accidently entered an incorrect eftpos pin she did a big sigh and made out like it was the end of the world. Every plug in the cafe has... More
