A group of us had brunch here last week, each of us chose something different from the menu. Everyone was extremely happy with their choice. Meals chosen were prawn tempura, poached eggs , salt & pepper squid, Hawaiian chicken burger. Super friendly staff, indoor or outdoor seating.

Thank Moichev

They have a fine selection of cabinet food and an awesome menu. Not the same thing you find everywhere which is very refreshing. Service is friendly and efficient with very knowledgeable staff. Calamari salad was full of vibrant flavours and an excellent size. Coffee good and hot. Soup of the day actually seems to change each day which is nice. I had a Spanish tomato soup with grilled cheese, so satisfying. Playground is safe and a really good size to keep the kids entertained so us adults can relax. Very nice spot, happy to go back again and again.

Great food and wonderful service. Although the prawn dish with 6 prawns only and non sides was steep. The rest of the dishes were great and offered good value for money.

Not sure what happened there as your dish should have had seven prawns. We have discussed the lack of a side with the prawns with our chef/partner and we will add a small side said with each dish as this is not the first time we have had the same comments. Thanks for bringing this to our attention

Fantastic lunch on a wild and windy day. The calamari salad was absolutely sensational - I could have eaten it twice over! Really good coffee as well.

Thanks for your great comments. Our chef/partner Nick has been 'playing' with the Calamari Salad & now has a formula/recipe that everyone loves! Look forward to welcoming you back
