We stopped in to try the Gelato and Ice Creams. Didn't expect to see a full array of cheeses from all around Australia.

The range of gluten free foods is amazing. I had the vegetarian gluten free focaccia which was delicious. There is gourmet ice cream and cheeses and very good coffee. Very relaxed atmosphere and happy friendly staff. Worth the drive.
