An excellent Dining Experience. Awesome food, a great selection for all tastes and lovely atmosphere. There is a fire going these chilly days and the sun shines in. There is the outdoor dining experience as well. Excellent and pleasant service with bathroom on premises.

We found this cafe while stocking up on supplies for our holiday at the supermarket across the road. It was the cafe's birthday so everyone received birthday cake to celebrate. The coffee was great and the cake was delicious. Worth a visit.
