They serve wonderful freshly cooked food. I always enjoy the Chefs Salad. The staff is always very welcoming and friendly. There is a delightful garden where you can dine on a lovely day. It is a firm favourite with the local Georgians.

Have been to this pleasant, well run cafe twice during my stay in George. Has a lovely little garden with plants and water features. The food is yummy and the service is friendly and efficient. Lovely coffee. Very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

There is indoor seating, but the back garden is very pleasant, with a few private seating areas. Delicious and unusual menu offerings, with some wonderful vegetarian options.

Long wait. Excellent Hot Cholate! The pulled pork sandwich I had contained bad meat as I endured stomach cramps and diarrhoea since midnight. Pity.
