Are you a cafe or a wine bar? This place used to be good until they decided to open it up as a wine bar in the evenings. They removed half the seating and replaced them with couches. It hardly has seating for 15 people....More

Visited with friends on a Saturday afternoon for coffee, the queue was out the door but the service was still very quick and friendly! Coffees were delicious and the cakes were to die for!

Great lunch! Catered for a large group of us, food was homecooked and so good, plenty of vegetarian and gluten free options. Staff were so lovely and friendly and the cakes were to die for. Great place and would definitely recommend!

We had a few bits to takeaway, and were disappointed. The menu has not changed, very boring, frittata was soggy, potatoes in it hard and one tasted rotten. Cakes ok, but all in all really wish we hadn't wasted our money.

Came across this place by accident and the kids were getting rowdy so perfect time to stop in. The selection was perfect for this type of encounter - sausage roll to keep me happy and sweet treats for the kids. It was pretty cheap too!...More
