Quaint and rustic. Excellent food with some very interesting and well presented choices. Great coffee. It can be a bit warm and noisy, but has a nice atmosphere. Outside eating is pleasant unless it's a hot sunny day. Lovely place for breakfast. Easy parking.

Great relaxed vibe. Went for a family brunch (visiting from Canberra). Service was fantastic and loved the coffee. Best Greek salad I’ve had in a long time.

Kettle and Grain Café is located in an old school house behind the Young Museum. There is plenty of both indoor and outdoor seating. First of all, the coffee was excellent. Secondly, I have long ago given up getting a decent club sandwich in Australia....More

Great food and service with average cost for meals. We went with a group of 8 and there was sufficient choice on the menu to cater for all of our tastes.
