We come to cafe often because our friends always prefer this place to others. Food are cooked beautifully and tasted delicious. And there is always plenty in the menu to choose from.

Probably best to book. But sorry, I'm guessing this reply is a little late.

Sorry for the delay. Lots of parking is available. Not ideal inside for someone with a disability but they are ver accommodating.
