Delicious little cafe hidden away. Highly recommend this place, the halloumi dish is amazing. Best halloumi I’ve ever had, the produce is so fresh. The coffee was great as well!

Great ambiance and quiet location for a sit down coffee. I didn't eat but the food looked great. Clean inside and outside area had shade provided. Close to the carpark but without noisy passing traffic. Coffee was very good made to order and quick.

We only had a brunch at the Palate Food & Drink Restaurant (this is not a café), We had a savory scone & a fabulous coffee. The meals that others were eating looked good. Would certainly recommend the coffee.
