Easy to see why it won cafe of the year!!!
Charming, quirky, tranquil gardens/grounds, lunch under a shady tree, kids can run around. Nice array of homewares with a slight French influence and scarfs etc for sale in one of the side rooms The food was just delicious and so nice to get a decent size portion today. Try the Pavlova with cream and berry sauce, yum.

We went here twice on our holiday as we loved the food and coffee, beautiful surroundings and the food is fantastic, great selection of cakes, muffins etc and condiments you can buy. A small playground and a basket of toys made it very relaxing for us. A shame its for sale hopefully the cafe keeps going.

Recommended to visit this cafe. It has a lovely atmosphere. Really homely, lots of kooky stuff on display. Mouth watering cakes and pies on display. Staff very friendly. Very busy place
