A very nice small cafe, with excellent service and very reasonable prices. The menu is limited, but very pleasant. A nice place for lunch or a morning tea.

We popped in for lunch and were not disappointed! The flatbread with mushroom, spinach, red onion, peppers and chilli was delicious and they had a good selection of sandwiches, quiches, scones and cakes. Really great coffee too! Staff were really friendly and service was quick.
