My group of friends had lunch here today and couldn't speak highly enough of the fabulous, friendly service and delicious food (particularly the beer battered chips and my friend had the best chai latte). Definitely a good find whilst exploring Morpeth

This place really needs to learn how to make coffee. Watery and very unpleasant. The scones were like bricks not fresh. Would not recommend or return.More

I think you must have the wrong cafe Krissy B as our scones are made by hand and baked fresh every morning and our coffee is one of the best (if not "the best") according to all of our customers in Morpeth. Our barista is...More

Yes. The whole of Campbell's Store precinct is the most accessible area in Morpeth. Best to load/ unload a wheelchair in Green Street outside Morpeth Gallery. It is quite flat and there is no high gutter.
