Had lunch here the other weekend and it was really good! Service was attentive and friendly and the tomato and basil soup was delicious. For mains we had the seafood platter (prawns and crayfish on a bed of greens) and the cornbeef hash - my husband said it was the best he had ever had. Would definitely return.

Just the place for a relaxed lunch while post-Christmas shopping. Tasty Eggs Benedict & good coffee really hit the spot.
