I've been here before with family and friends and always had lovely meals. This trip I wanted something lighter and chose a caesar salad. It was to die for ... so fresh and light. This is a great little cafe, and it serves fresh juices...and great coffeeMore

Staff were really great, welcoming and helpful. Had a good variety of food - I'd give any of the big brekkies a skip. Rather get your coffee elsewhere.

Called in for take a way coffee for my wife and I. It was really busy and that’s great and understanding that you have to wait. And the business eases is as only as good as the barista, who may change from time to time...as I have had great coffee at times. But this time the coffee was so bad I could not drink it. Too hot and so the coffee taste become really bitter and I could taste burnt milk as it was “cooked”. Disappointing.More

Popular cafe. Good menu options, nice brand of tea which is a bonus for tea connoisseurs. Staff friendly and happy - well done!

Ordered two lots of Eggs Benedict, both overcooked. 35 minute wait. Nice Hollandaise though. Tasty fresh OJ.

Service and food are both really good with dog zone out the back. Lunch is main food time, but snacks are great with coffee at anytime.

Very unfriendly staff all around - acting very impatiently and not a single smile here. The place is busy and I understand it can feel overwhelming but if the customers are smiling and friendly maybe don’t take your frustration out on them!

Located on main road in Sorell, great place to stop for coffee or a well prepared meal. Coffee is great. My favourite food for lunch is either the Caesar Salad or the grilled barramundi. Great staff too .
