We went here after a walk down the Main Street and were bitterly disappointed when we left! We ordered two big breakfasts (one with sausages substituted for avocado) and two long blacks. We got the long blacks 15 minutes after sitting down and the food...More

We ate here for lunch today and the food was terrible. I had the open grilled chicken sandwich. The chicken seemed like it was precooked then cooked again, tough, hard as a rock and inedible. The toast wasn’t buttered and only toasted in the top...More

We had lunch here, both had the open chicken sandwich, mine on gluten free bread. Food was fine. Milkshake was delicious. Just don't sit near the front door during cold weather as it doesn't shut properly unless you push on it and unfortunately most people...More

Came for brunch with my friend. The cafe was quite crowded but the staff were friendly and service was good. Very generous serving of smoked salmon and great coffee.

We have eaten here 5-6 times in the last few years, always expecting that the service may have improved. Understaffing both in the kitchen and front of house is really no excuse when your town is hosting a major event attracting thousands ripe and ready...More

We didn't and should have!! We ordered the full Breakfast. The only thing that was hot was the hash brown. Everything else was either luke-warm or worse. I got the feeling that the food was pre-prepared apart from the hash brown. I would not recommend...More

Meal was most expensive I have ever paid for breakfast. Taste was bad ( bacon had potential but was undercooked quite a bit) and portion size was terribly small. Poor value. Coffee was alright, came free with my meal. Tiniest coffee I ever bought but...More
