Had a nice vanilla milkshake and momma' Greek toastie for lunch. The outdoor seating would be very pleasant in the Australian Spring / Autumn. A good stop off on a day trip in the park - Purling Book Falls are nearby

We enjoyed the most delicious food today. Not only was it healthy, homemade and using local produce, but it was particularly tasty as well. Heartily recommend. You could combine it with a walk in the beautiful rainforest next door.

Service a bit slow, but they were busy. Good menu, especially is you are vegan/vegan. Can recommend, but maybe ring orders through in advance.

Hi I'm just a reviewer, not the owner. But pretty sure they weren't open in the evenings.
