Full marks for actually having vegan options on the menu. I had the vegan brekky, which on the website is advertised for $20.50 but is actually $24.50 - you need to update your website. It includes two rosemary and sage sausages, vege hash cake, baked...More

Went with a local friend for lunch. Plenty of gluten free options, staff were pleasant, considering they were busy we didn’t wait long for our food and both meals were tasty. Pricing on the high side but was happy to pay to have good gluten...More

We love to sit and have coffee & cake at the bach, its lovely outside on the deck. Although it is extremely hot n stuffy inside, could do with more opening windows and or aircon. Staff always look hot and uncomfortable. Maybe they could wear...More
