We returned after 2 months and had the same meal (Oven Roasted Chicken) and it was still delicious. It takes 25 minutes to prepare due to oven roasting but the flavour, tenderness and sauce make it a wonderful lunch option. The baked potatoes and avocado are an added feature. I forgot the salad this time which makes for a nice... More

At those prices for brekky I expect it to be amazing. Some of the other dishes in the group looked better. Coffee was really good... More

Chicken burger was just a dry over cooked schnitzel in a bun with lettuce etc. Way over priced at $22. Family member had the steak burger which was just a... More

Breakfast is pretty flavorless, the big breaky anyway. The pancakes with bacon & banana is yumm. I find this place almost a better alternative to maccas for dinner but would try to get in elsewhere first! I'm not super fussy, but I like glaciers

Visited for lunch, I had a pizza and my husband had a focaccia. The food was ok not great but just passable. The wine however was terrible. Both of us had two sips of our wine and didn't drink anymore. The wait staff were friendly however non of them asked about our full glasses of wine when we were waiting... More

Visited new years day probably expected too much but food was enjoyable, staff very busy and the cafe was overly noisy inside. Generally speaking it was enjoyable.

Do yourself a favour, stay away. Terrible service, terrible, lukewarm food. Obvious attempts at using as little food as possible in meals and making it look generous. Cold chips, not that cheap. Way better places in Willy to go to.
