Dropped in for a banana smoothie and staff member was really helpful, friendly and accomodating. Smoothie was a take away and had dates, yoghurt, honey and cinnamon. Excellent on skim to reduce the kilojoules. Thanks Lotus

Had a quick lunch here after a swim at the beach. Food was pretty good and my salad had a good amount of flavour even though it looked a bit plain. Coffee was also great as was the fresh juice.
