Reviewed 27 July 2013

Great sheltered courtyard for Sunday lunch good coffee and very enjoyable open steak salad sandwich. Busy Sunday with a lot of locals was recommended by a couple we meet from Hamilton . Will come back again off main road with good friendly buzz

“Great coffee!”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

My experience here is pretty minimal consisting of just takeaway coffees collected by others. Having said that, the coffee was great and rated as such by everyone who had coffees. Will have to call in for a meal next time...

Great service, food and ambience. Catered for all types - couples, families, pets and all. Excellent "big" breakfast. We'll certainly be back.

“Great Lunch Stop!”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

Highly recommend this relaxed and welcoming tasty treat of a place! On our way back from the Coromandel from our holiday, saw this little cafe off the road which looked to be ideal with our 2 year old and very happy with our choice, Great fresh food with a mexican/fusion style menu and good wine selection for the grandparents!
I manage a restaurant and I must say I felt very comfortable and well look after & thanks for the pens for my daughter Bloem too.

Will be back on our next visit.... Cheers

“Perfect spot for our wedding reception!”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

The atmosphere and the food was fabulous! They were very easy going and made the night really special for us. The location is just behind the main street, so you have to be looking for this hidden gem. I would highly recommend.
