Called in for brunch on Sunday morning. Great selection of gluten free food. Coffee was only ok. Food was very tasty, although we had to wait about 45 mins to get it. Service was friendly, though slow.

Dropped in for a banana smoothie and staff member was really helpful, friendly and accomodating. Smoothie was a take away and had dates, yoghurt, honey and cinnamon. Excellent on skim to reduce the kilojoules. Thanks Lotus
