Many thanks to the super friendly and helpful staff who very patiently waited for our order while our daughter had a meltdown over the lack of pies (in their defence, we were having a late lunch at 2pm). Various kid-friendly options were offered and she...was eventually placated by a giant bowl of deliciously crunchy chips and a couple of slices of the toasted house made ciabatta. The hubby and son enjoyed their burgers and I had the excellent fettuccine ragu - seriously one of the best I’ve tried. It was a shame that we couldn’t fit in any dessert as the cake display was incredibly enticing. We will be back! ps Definitely recommend sitting out the back to enjoy the awesome murals decorating the walls.More

Highly recommend this place. The seafood pasta was delicious. Perhaps the pasta was house made. The Green Risotto with leeks, peas and spinach ... was the best I have ever tasted. Not too crunchy but just the right amount of bite and right amount of...cheese. The carrot-ginger was a little of a disappointment .... perhaps not up to my taste palate. The hot chocolate with a twist of Sicilian orange was something you should try if you are adventurous. Next time I would try the hot chocolate with chilli infused. The ambience is bright, vibrant and cheerful. If you are going to mount gambier ... definitely a must try place.More

Food, especially the cakes, are wonderful. The choice is so large, but whatever you choose it should not disappoint. The coffee is very good, the atmosphere is great, and the care is also very good.

The almond crossiants are the best, having been to France a few times and had the very best, these crossiants are the best outside of Europe! And i bhave tried many, many places around the world amd in Australia, nothing beats these. Heavy with lots...of almond paste and huge, it's worth a 5 hour drive just to buy them 🥰More

Omg so many gf options available. My daughter was in heaven. We visited here twice first day for afternoon tea coffee and cake. The selection was amazing so many options available. I had the most Devine carrot cake it was so moist and the icing...had a hint of orange in it. My daughter chose a gf chocolate mud cake which she said was amazing and my son had a chocolate mud as well and said it was delicious. The coffee was full bodied with a beautiful creaminess to it. Breakfast the following day was to die for I had smashed avo with a poached egg, feta and tomato with pesto on black rye scrumptious unfortunately no photos I just devoured it.More

Maybe this is an unfair review as I am judging the coffee only. For us the flavor was so very light on the coffee flavor left a horrible taste for quite so time
