Enjoyed the best beef burger here. Lovely cafe, plenty to look at in both art and local produce while you wait for the meals.

The food was attractive and very good as was the coffee and tea selection. There is some serious paintings here - very much worth the time to inspect. Very impressed.

Staff warm and welcoming, coffee perfect. We keep returning for their egg and bacon panini; their tomato relish is amazing! Lovely space with lots to look at too. Will keep returning. Thanks!

Very busy, but ordering at counter helps to keep it flowing. Had a hot breakfast, eggs cooked beautifully as was bacon and tomato. Coffee great too. Staff exceptional, hats off to this little cafe’s staff on such a busy day.

We just stopped here when walking past, having not ready any reviews. Very friendly service, the food was good and they had some good local wines. The art gallery had some excellent art but was very expensive for a small regional gallery.

Coffee tasted odd, perhaps a syrup was infused. Had asked for cappuccinos and they tasted like a Knickerbocker glory. Lady told us off for paying by card. Nice ambience and busy despite off season. Menu needs seafood! It is after all a stone's throw from...More
