Great fresh food and excellent coffee. A little on the expensive side but excellent produce. There is an upstairs area and an extended area to the side. Great to sit and read the paper or catch up with friends.

This place rates number one in Devonport. I guess my expectations were too high. My friend just had a milk shake for $6 which he said was nice and cold. I had a half strength Cappuccino in a mug and an apple and cinnamon muffin....More
