Came across this hidden oasis just by chance. Good job we were hungry because the food is excellent and there are a lot of options for Veggies too! Seriously, a welcoming smile, lovely ambiance and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Heard bout this café on the bus , it's tucked away . no advertising around I didn't know it existed. Nice tables & chairs . pleasant staff. Food cooked to order . nicely served but quite pricey.
