The setting of the historic building is well worth the visit by itself. Their hotcakes, avacado smash and scramble eggs and coffees are amazing and hearty. Would definitely visit them again and again. Great service and pleasant staff just added to the whole experience

Beaut little spot for an afternoon coffee. Service very friendly and relaxed. Only negative would be there was no cake or excessively decadent chocolate looking treats, that I did not need but just wanted. I cannot be bothered ordering a dessert with my cuppa. The...More
