We found this place by chance when it happened to be lunch time on our travels. It's a total delight - a cafe and health-food store with indoor and outdoor tables and great character. You can even buy autographed books by local authors. Great range of whole foods if you want to buy supplies. Gorgeous healthy, home-cooked food - soups,... More

If you are passing St Marys do call by for coffee and cake - Rhubarb cake is very good, served with a scoop of cream or ice-cream. we called in en route up the east coast. They also have wifi which is in short supply in the area.

This cafe actually serves tea with real tea leaves. Good selection of cake. You can sit out on the pavement, inside or in a small garden. Incredible array of natural foods in tubs.

Just drop in to see for yourself. A charming place for a coffee or tea and a nibble. Lovely country atmosphere.

We got there so early, that the owners were just arriving!! They opened the shop up and allowed us to use the loos, admire their vegetable gardens and to take a seat Coffee machine warmed up and I had the best hot chocolate that I have every tasted. Husband and daughter had some slices and both remarked on the taste... More

Lovely ambience and very welcoming. Potential to be great but we were a little disappointed with the food. Soft poached eggs only had half the white cooked (which I appreciate some may like) and the scrambled eggs with tomatoes didn't actually come with any tomatoes.
