This delightful cafe is usually busy when we go. A testament to its great food and service. Try it out. I can't fault the food or the coffee. The prices are however, getting very high. Perhaps the rent is too high. A sign of the...More

Have had nice breakfasts & lunches, always busy though, sometimes the line is out the door, which shows how popular it is. I'm not always keen on the menu so end up eating the same old poached eggs. Kids are welcome, personally I wouldn't take...More
