Food is good. Unfortunately the service less than satisfactory. 20 minutes wait for a coffee isn’t good.

With a wide variety of foods to choose from and a license to sell adult beverages this place was a surprisingly interesting find. We each had a BLAT, which head among the normal Things BBQ sauce. While it may sound like something you may not...More

We had breakfast here and it was pretty cold, everyone kept their jackets on. The corn fritters were really dry but the mushrooms on toast were good. Quick service though and the coffee was good!

Been here often. Situated in a quaint old house at lake end of town. Efficient friendly service. Great choice of places to sit.. on footpath at the front, inside downstairs, inside up a few stairs, outside on covered verandah or in the garden.
