Adjacent to the Art Factory, café Seraphine caters to a large number of patrons Tuesday-Sunday 7.30am-4.30pm as well as for functions in and outside normal art gallery hours.

Cafe food was fantastic! Creatively presented and excellent variety of dishes. Friendly staff and great coffee and smoothies. Bought several gifts from gift shop that I hadn't seen in other shops of this type. Definitely worth the drive to visit the cafe and gallery!

The Art Gallery has free kids art on Sundays but during school holidays holds various activities. There was a lot of activities, free snack food and drinks. Enjoyed ourselves as usual.
