Stopped in here for a morning coffee and was pleasantly surprised. Coffees were hot and the selection of morning rolls and cakes were impressive. Service was excellent and highly recommend

Stopped in while waiting on the wife who was shopping. Tried the macaroni found it was not that tasty cakes and scones may have been a better choice. Doubt I will visit again, other places in the centre offer better value.More
