If you've been before, don't fret. Only the name has changed. If it's your first time: the waffles are amazing. They are not dense, they're feather-light (but truly Xlarge) which means you can actually keep it moving after you've eaten one (vs. wanting to crawl...More

Wonderful little place. Everything is prepared & served with care & attention to detail. Try the tulip hot chocolate & Belgian waffles with fresh fruit. It's really something special!

A friend and I shared an excellent lunch of the most delicious quiche I ever had. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team and so you are assured of the best possible service and food. Go - you will not regret it!

Found this tiny place whilst looking for a lunch stop one day. Food very tasty & beautifully presented (delicious fresh seeded bread). Tables are cramped together (no good for luggage, buggies or those with impaired mobility), but clean. We were asked to (politely) move to...More

I walked in here for brunch and without even being greeted with a 'hello' or anything I was just coldly told 'no space'. Thats it. I should have paid heed to some of the terrible reviews i have read and should have never gone there....More
