“Great spot for a wine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Stopped here on Friday evening for a wine and some nibbles. Great recommendations from the staff for local wine, great food (go the pulled pork! Yum!) and a nice chilled atmosphere.

“Really nice if you like the owners dog to check out your food, kitchen etc”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Umm.. what can I say? If you want to watch the owner's dog check out your food, wander through the kitchen, clean its bottom whilst inside the cafe....

And if you dare to complain, getting ready for some appalling service and attitude. "it's the owner's decision" apparently. Problem is that it is not the position of the law. Or good hygiene.

Go somewhere else.

Were recommended by locals to dine here. Food was great and atmosphere was very festive with a very alternative 2 man band playing outside on the garden area

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

We had a delightful lunch here. The seafood chowder, and a Caesar salad. The salad came with an egg on top and bacon. Very different from California's version...and very good!
