Excellent food, good range of choice in both sweet and savoury options. The coffee is first class. 3 areas avail to eat, 2 are outside which is perfect in good weather.

Wow,this cafe was recommended by a shop assistant and it didn't disappoint.Starting with great service from the young lady at the front counter to an amazing piece of Carrot Cake and Great Coffee.It was most enjoyable. I would certainly go again and will have no trouble recommending it to my friends and colleagues.

I came here for my 50th birthday and this is by far my favourite cafe. I love it here. It's small and narrow but long and worth it. When you order your food you are stood over some of the most amazing cakes. Lots of staff but they are on to it. Seating outside inside and out the back. No... More

One of my favs at the Mount - great food, great service. Its always busy but they have a courtyard out the back if the front looks full - definitely work a visit and I'll certainly be back!

Highly recommend this place. Busy spot. Very popular. Pastries to die for. For meals we got the 88, cheese corn stack, both which were delicious. We split a blueberry white choc brioche for dessert, because why not get dessert with breakfast? Yum! For drinks we got a caramel Macchiato and iced coffee, both of which were perfect. We left stuffed.

This is a stylish little cafe on the main strip and the staff were really friendly. Great coffee, lush cakes and a cool atmosphere. We loved it!

Nice surrounds, great selection of sweets but to be honest the corn fritter stack was a bit dry and plain. The jumbo sausage roll was average and the frittata was bland. All three dishes came with the same condiment. The mocca was good however. I don't think I will return unless for coffee & cake.
