The only good thing to say about it was the coffee. The brioche sliders were the size of a 20c piece and were only worth about that much. There was nothing fancy about the table set up and the desserts were far too sweet. Would...More

Terrible high tea menu, not worth $48. Not many savoury options and the prawn cocktail was not as expected.

A very limited menu at certain times of the day. Great location. Nice coffee We only went once because there were options just along the street.

A special 5 course dinner for Honey Month using a range of WA honey for all dishes. Loved the pork for main and the plate of dessert specials using honey for nougat, honeycomb and ice cream partnered with honey cake.

On a Saturday evening we visited this café, with friends from overseas, to find that they offered a "Sunset Buffet' and not a la carte. We thought we'd give it a try anyway. To say that the selections were 'ordinary' was an understatement, and for...More

The buffet seems to operate at weekends, and one can not truly call it a seafood one as the choices are limited to fresh prawns, smoked salmon and one or two hot fish choices. The bonus I guess is that you can eat your body... More

Hi. On the evening we went the menu was a la carte…but a good range of options we recall. It has been remodelled since the buffet days, and there is a more spacious layout. The atmosphere is probably slightly more formal... More
