Have been on numerous previous occasions as my nieces loved the food. However since the new owners have taken over it has gone downhill, this second time time trying them is was again not very good. One niece ordered the margarita pizza which is described as napolitano sauce, parmesan and basil. It arrived with tomato slices as well which one... More

We arrived just as they were opening on a Saturday morning, and we're welcomed in by friendly staff. We ordered straight away and didn't have to wait long. Good coffee and I had an excellent omelette. After breakfast we walked through to inspect the huge range of quality pottery made there. Going back there very soon.

Have been here before on numerous occasions and normally this place is really good with exceptional service, but not this time. Ordered two cappuccinos and counter food. The people behind us in the queue ordered hot food from the kitchen. They got their food well before we got ours. When the coffee finally came, which wasn't very nice, it was... More

We came to buy pots for the garden, but couldn't resist the delicious range of cakes. The garden was lovely and had plenty of shade. There was a play area for children with tables close by, for those with smaller children. The cakes and muffins were really tasty, and we loved the cup an saucer for our tea.

Lovely relaxed garden setting with a variety of table sizes etc, some standard table n chairs with or without umbrellas and some semi covered booth style under a pagoda like frame with various foliage, beautiful. It was just such a shame the food took forever. We visited on the Saturday of Labour Weekend so a busy weekend in the area... More

The new name for Morris & James Cafe. A lovely courtyard setting complements the "main course" which is the pottery with its well known pots large and small, tiles, wall hangings and demonstrations, seconds shop on site. Coffee and cakes, lunches with an all day menu. Open until 5pm. Surcharge on public holidays. Very busy (a good sign).

Nice place to stop for afternoon tea. Relaxing environment and great when the weather is nice. Good to have a look at the amazing pottery although we would never buy it as it is not in our price range. Have heard lots about this place so good to finally check it out.

After a pleasant walk through the pottery viewing some lovely goods went into the cafe for lunch. Plenty of choice, good wine at a fair price. Excellent service with a smile. If i am back in the area will go again.

After visiting the pottery we decided to have lunch in the café and were not disappointed. The service was friendly and the food delicious. The courtyard setting is comfortable and relaxed with many examples of the pottery scattered about. The salmon bagel was the best I have ever tasted

We called into Morris and James and enjoyed looking through the shop and then having a nice lunch. Had corn fritters. Very enjoyable. Loved the guitar player there too when we visited. You can also have tours of the pottery making which would be interesting, done at a set time.
