Hi Darlene, we're sorry the cafe didn't meet your expectations. Unfortunately with varying traffic at the mill (particularly on weekdays), the cafe couldn't support full-time staffing, so we converted it to a self-serve model offering a variety of beverages, light lunches and scrumptious treats from...More

Didn’t know this place existed until we drove by and ventured onto the property. This place is astonishing. A transformed old factory into a classy hub. Art galleries and work rooms on the top floor. Art displays, jewelry, clothes, furniture, displays on the main floor...More

Worth taking a little visit to. Fairly large, mostly paintings but a few crafts. Great artists, friendly and nice morning coffee spot.

A different kind of of place to be - full of artworks for sale. It was a short visit to truly appreciate or even just to enjoy the artworks displayed in the mill. All we can say is “we have to come back here”.

We attended a family wedding here. The venue was ideal in all respects and made the occasion unique.

This place is great for art lovers. Many artists use this space for their working studios. A good bistro, galleries, museum and artistic boutiques as well, all rolled into a historic old mill. Just lovely! Highly recommended.

Beautifully-restored old mill. We dropped in for lunch, but the cafe we had read about was not at all what we expected. Very tiny, no real menu to speak of. We enjoyed wandering through the building and looking at the works of art, but found...More
