Hard to decide what to have! There were so many great things, savory and sweet. All Freshly. Baked and nicely presented. Enjoyed the freshberry muffins. Great coffee too. Took ours down to wharf and enjoyed the picnic tables and view.

This cafe is now called "The Bakery' but the selection of food and the coffee is just as good as previously. It's a great place for a wide variety of decadent snacks and good coffee.

Food was only average. Service was only average. Would be nice to have the table all served at the same time, instead of one person in a group getting their food, and pretty much finishing before others served.

The Naked Bun has always been a reliable stop for lovely food and good service and we found nothing had changed on our most recent visit for Saturday lunch. Salmon salad was superb!

Has been under a change of ownership for a number of years but I can only guess that they have retained some excellent staff in the kitchen - the bakery is very good but burnt my mouth on a coffee never leaves a good taste.
