Often call in for takeaway for lunch. Frustrated latley about slow and muddled service at the register. Need to improve to keep me coming back. The wait is far to long for my 30min lunch break.More

Afternoon visit with the Grandchildren, had a great selection of pastries, pies and pasties etc, delicious!! Atmosphere is a bit ordinary, very open but none the less worth while.

A great take on the classic cheese and vegemite roll/scroll. Super fresh and tasty. Yummy coffee and quick, friendly service. A great find for a ‘quick bite’.

Stopped in for a simple lunch. Good selection of pies and pastries. Nothing special about the atmosphere or seating, but just right for a quick snack. Pie with sauce... as Australian as a sausage in bread.

We called into the bakery for breakfast after seeing it next to Squires Loft Restaurant where we had dinner the night before. The selection was very good and their coffee was great. It certainly seemed a popular destination for early morning coffees. We enjoyed it.
