Been a while since I was here. Reduced capacity and slightly awkward administration of covid procedures does not detract from the cafe. There appears to be an appreciatable rise in pricing also.

Good service, decent food, worth a visit. We enjoyed our iced coffees & lunch. Keep an eye on the specials board, its worth ordering off it.

They’ve just renovated and the cafe is so much nicer and brighter. Such a lovely atmosphere and the staff are so professional and friendly. I had again the salmon benedict which was presented very well with a lovely edible flower garnish. Good coffee too! Try...the pineapple punch fresh juice. Really different zingy taste! Think it may have had ginger and something else in it- very refreshing! I’ll be back!More

I have been here a few times for brekky or lunch. I like the new menu and the service is excellent. They seem to be dealing with the Covid restrictions and guidelines very well. Love the happy facemasks :)

Fabulous breakfast. We chose to share - poached eggs and bacon on toast and then the banana pancakes with butterscotch sauce. Sensational! The service was top notch. They picked up that we would prefer the pancakes to come after we finished the eggs and brought...share plates, fresh napkins and cutlery. Outstanding service. Coffee was good too!More

I have dined here a few times now for brunch and have always enjoyed it. The food is pretty good and the service is quite good and attentive. It is also moderately priced, i haven't had a bad meal here.
