Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I went to this cafe a couple of weeks ago… there was a girl behind the counter dark hair young that was so abrupt with me and rude … I only asked a question! And it was like she couldn’t be bothered! It was so...disgusting ! My friend went there a couple of days later and the same girl also treated her really badly! Really rude!!! We’re locals… and to treat locals who talk to other locals is pretty stupid! We’ve already told how bad the treatment was We will NOT be going again!!!!!More

Great lunch we had a toasted and fresh wrap. Both were generously packed with our fillings which were delicious. So full we couldn’t eat our cake. Will visit again.

We decided to go to Graces Bakery for lunch as they are consistently good in both food served and service. Being a cold day my husband and I decided to have a gourmet pie. I had the Beef and Kidney which was fabulous with lots...of filling and great flaky pastry. My husband had the Beef and Pepper which he really liked.More

We love going to Grices for lunch. The coffee is great and they have an extensive menu. The only downside is they don't accept card payment.

The whole team at work are addicted the the sausage rolls here. They are big and a reasonable price, the pastry is flaky and they are just yum. You can eat in or take away and they do nice sandwiches and burgers too. They also...have a tasty selection of cakes. Always good customer service.More

One can't pass up a traditional bakery with all the old favourites like meat pies and sausage rolls. We bought 2 beef pepper pies to take away and were not disappointed by the huge chucks of beef and the zingy taste. There were many sweet...treats from which to choose. A small dining area is located to the side of the shop. Coffee and tea are also on offer. Great place to stop for a short break or to take away.More

We ordered some hot pastries as well as the coffee & cake combo. The pastries were quite good but the quiche was very delicious. The star of the show was the chocolate mousse cake, very rich and decadent and the flat white we ordered was...brewed very well. The cafe was clean and very homely and cosy, the staff friendly and helpful wearing cheerful smiles as well. We plan to come again to try out their burgers and wraps too! They also have a large range of large pies and cakes for less than $10 that can be taken home to have for tea as well. P. S. This cafe is cash only so come prepared!More
