“great lunch at good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013

This was a great pair of meals for lunch, possibly the best cafe lunch we've experienced in many years of dining out in Australasia (particularly Auckland & Melbourne) and worldwide. The food was outstanding and the service just fine, despite the other reviews. Lunch in the courtyard on a wonderful summer afternoon was a great experience. The courtyard could do with a small tidy up but otherwise this was fantastic and good value.

“Great waiter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

One of the waiters was fantastic, but that was the highlight of this place. Was quite overpriced but had a voucher which was the reason we went. Perhaps not sticking so much onion in everything would have made for a better meal, but it was still a great atmosphere

“Roger1278”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Good coffee & morning tea venue.(scones recommended).
A typical cafe style menu with limited choices.
Popular with the locals for dinner but we felt there were other better choices.

“Yummy all day breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We had a great meal at 2.30pm in the afternoon and had the big all day breakfast and fish of the day. All presented beautifully and with a smile from a very helpful waitress.
