Been here a few times over the past year or so. It can get busy around lunch time especially on Sundays, but they have a great view and food/coffee to match. Staff always seem welcoming and it’s a nice spot to meet friends.

Brenton J thank you for your feedback. Having read some of your others I'm not too concerned with it. The hours that you have quoted are our winter trading hours but I suspect your not the type of person who would understand that. Small businesses...More

Finally settled on the crumbed whiting with chips and salad. ALL good! Tasty and quick to the table. Friendly host also makes an excellent double shot skinny cappuccino (which is a big tick in my book!)
