One of my go to cafes when I'm wanting a decent coffee. The food is amazing and very well-priced. Highly recommend for brunch or a coffee date.

Needed a coffee and pie stop on a Saturday and this was still open (closed at 5pm). Coffee was good and had a minced lamb parcel which was home made and delicious. Tomato sauce was also home made, you can taste the quality. Yum.

Frequent this place regularly for work meetings. Coffee always good and overall good lunchtime cafe food. Staff seem to turnover fast though, someone different serving almost every week.

Inside was very cramped for ordering at the counter but our coffees came promptly and were nice and hot. We sat outside which was a bit noisy but Nice to be outside at this time of year!
