We always enjoy our time together and also the food is delicious. Sitting out on the verandah is always very pleasant. A very congenial manager.

Great services and good coffee, the panini/sandwiches are tasty and fresh. Overall a great place with a nice calming ambience to read a book or do some quite work.

Over the years our family and many others have encountered this cafe owner very rude and unfriendly to the customers and inconsiderate smoking outside on the front and carpark at the library in front of children and seniors. There's a childcare just nextdoor which parents...need to past by him for pickup/dropoff!! We also felt uncomfortable entering the cafe anymore after our friends complained how unfriendly he was. Its ashamed to see such a wonderful library and environment polluted by this person!!More

I intend to go to Knowledge Grounds Cafe because of the (terrible) reviews. It appears people have become a little disrespectful of this being at public eating place providing a service to many customers, besides just themselves. I would not like to be seated where...someone has had their feet on chairs or couches, or where children have crawled all over the place and dropped food. I walk out of restaurants if I see nappies being changed in public places, kids crawling over chairs, bench tops, or running around loudly and unsupervised. If I was a cafe/restaurant owner, I would also not appreciate customers bringing food in from outside. Everyday etiquette is also about common sense and politeness. People, please put your foot in the owner/managers shoes - think about others, not just yourself.More

A wonderful little cafe next to the Library. Very baby and child friendly. The staff are always polite and helpful. The coffee is great and I highly recommend the Turkish Rolls and Cheesecake!

We visited Knowledge Grounds Cafe this morning and had a lovely time. We were there with our little granddaughter to borrow some books from the Library. As it turned out we were too early so sat down on the lovely sofas in the Cafe and...enjoyed some tasty coffee and cake, until the Library opened. The service was quick and friendly. We will be doing this more often now!More

Finishing my PhD and spend at least 2 days a wee in here. Simon is a lovely guy that seems genuine and friendly to all his customers. Always greeted with a smile and a chat. Wouldn’t survive at the moment without him. The coffee and...food is great and an amazing selection of fresh food for such a small place. Great service, great food. What else do you need?More
