Four of us visited this week for lunch. Reasonable menu. Fish, chips and salad enjoyed. Chicken, mango, avocado pizza with chilli sauce was good - large enough to share. A number of enticing desserts to choose from. Coffee just OK. Service good but with the number of staff could have checked on us for dessert and payment - we had... More

Reasonably priced for lunch and dinner, a good selection of cakes and deserts and good coffee. Suit for a pre movie meal.

Arrived at the restaurant at 10:30am for a quick brunch with the family, immediately ordering drinks to start. Location was nice with the sun out and comfy atmosphere. Didn't realize the time taken to order our food though (approx. 10 mins later). Ordered a Scone and Banana and Walnut Pancakes, not all for myself trust me. Scone came fairly quickly,... More

We visited for a light lunch and coffee. The atmosphere is informal and friendly. The service, food and coffee were excellent. The coffee was strong, but I am surprised by negative comments in a previous review. If you do not like strong coffee ask for weak. Will visit again.

The meals were delicious, nicely presented, each meal was very enjoyable. One had steak, one had pasta and two had risotto, absolutely delicious. We could not find room for any... More

if looking for breakfast, this is the place to go. I think they also offer lunch and definitely open for dinner. Big range to choose from. Friendly staff. Quick service.

This is a good place for cakes, not a huge selection however there is the usual lemon meringue pie, berry cheesecake, chocolate mud cake and orange cake. The coffee had a bitter taste, and was far too hot! I suggest the lemon meringue pie!

The food is usually good here, although we were disappointed by the special "fish tacos" which were honestly just a wrap with some bits of fish, didn't seem like a taco at all and lacked flavour. Other than that, other dishes were good and as always the staff were pleasant.
