It's a nice cafe, and we really wanted a good meal, but it was disappointingly average. The service was prompt but she couldn't have been any less interested if she tried - nobody likes a trier... Ordered the pasta, which sounded great, but it was...More

A nice lunch spot in Berry, particularly out in the garden, with dogs welcome. Nice range of lunch food.

We stopped in for lunch on our way from Mollymook to Sydney. Lovely courtyard, nice bacon and egg rolls but the coffee was bitter and luke warm. Given the busy long weekend, that might have been the problem. Nice spot.More
