I ordered a chicken foccacia and it didn't taste like any I'd had before, there was a minute amount of very thin chicken breast on the bottom that I suspect was at least 4 days old as it was dry and tasteless. On top of this was a strip of bacon that still had the fat and rine on it!... More

On our way down from Spring brook we popped into this busy cafe. However we were not impressed..I'm afraid it all seemed rather disorganised, possibly staff shortages ( it was ANZAC DAY) and a tad tatty. So we just bought some wrapped ice creams from the fridge. That said, one of our group ordered a coffee which despite the wait... More

We visited today (Good Friday) and ordered fish & chips for our kids and a bowl of chips for hubby and I to share. We nearly waited 45min before I asked how much longer it would be & very politely I might ask. The lady cooking seemed cranky with people 'Just not understanding' and said something about her deep fryer... More

Stopped here for lunch....very disappointed. Over one hour to be served and the quality of the food is terrible. Not fresh at all except for the fries, and a too expensive considering the overall experience. Will not come back.

Had lunch here before going to our accommodation. It was midweek and we were the only customers. Place is quite big so it seemed a little strange. Later a small Japanese tour group dropped in. Food was ok. Serves were large. Service good.

This was one of the worst dining experiences I have had. The cafe was dirty and the meal was inedible. I gave my feedback to the staff and received no response. I am guessing they hear this type of feedback often. The owners of this should be ashamed , they clearly have no pride in their business. We only chose... More

Disappointing service and food. No care provided in even providing basic necessities like water (the water machine was empty and we were told it was "on reserve" - clearly just needed the bottle to be refilled!) Despite having gluten-free options, the chicken burgers ordered for the kids were undercooked/ raw in the middle. I opted for a gluten-free steak sandwich... More

Just sad... Service was lackluster. Food was very average. The pie was just a bowl of reheated mince which was still cold when I got it. The salad had slices of tomato which had obviously been sliced a few days beforehand. And best of all on the board above the register "Specials - no pizza". They just were not doing... More

The worst meal for exorbitant price. No salt and pepper on tables. Soup brought out after the main meal. Chicken parmigiana they used tin crushed tomatoes and cheese slices on the schnitzel. Don't waste your money!!!! And salad a bit of lettuce,one piece of tomato and one piece of cucumber. A beef pie with vegetable consisted of spaghetti mince with... More

Good place to drop in for a basic cafe meal. Thick shake and wedges was good. Outdoor seating area is nice.
