good coffee, terrible chicken wrap very bland. no amount of salt could save it. Iced coffee tastes gross. upon complaining found out it's not even made with milk. no offer of refund.

Friendly owner operated cafe. As regular patrons, it is our favourite local cafe. We find the great breakfasts excellent value for money. Mostly go there for morning coffee.

Been to this cafe twice recently. Both times (mid to late mornings) we found it very busy and generally full of older locals, mainly women, some using it as a meeting place. Obviously it is popular for a central position in town, but also the...More
