Really friendly fast service with great eggs. Ive eaten here previously and the food is always consistent. The coffee is also great. Pop next door to buy plants for your garden on the way home. Lovely outdoor seating on a sunny day

Excellent coffee and cafe food. It's not fine dining, but they do quality cafe fare just so well it might as well be. Everything they use is good quality and well sourced (delicious bacon). Prices are quite reasonable. Service is great - very attentive. They have a excellent team and it's actually a pleasure to see such great team work.... More

Great little cafe in an old house, with a front deck, and a rear courtyard, which both get the sun. Small menu and cabinet food, but great food and coffee. I go regularly.

Visiting from Nelson. My Brother knew this place and me there with our Mum. Lovely spot and a nice day so we sat outside. I had eggs Benedict which was very good, the eggs were beautiful. Mum had pumpkin soup and enjoyed it very much. Bro had omelet which was huge. Staff were warm and friendly.

We went to this Café for a birthday brunch, we had made a time and booked a table for 10. When we arrived we were 10 minutes late, mainly because we couldn't get a car park close by so had to park and walk some distance. one of the young staff said they were not pleased we were late and... More

This is an excellent option for brunch at the weekend, with really good cabinet and menu options. Friendly staff, great coffee, and an excellent outdoors area for when the sun is shining. The only downside is its popularity, and it does get very busy. If you simply want a break from the garden, then afternoon tea here is also good.

We've eaten here on a few tmes and bar one occasion where the food was not great they have since hit the mark each time. We recommend either the Eggs Benedict, any counter food or Omelette. Service is good, fast and friendly and although at peak times it can be a wait it is well worth it

Went out for brunch with friends on a Sunday morning, the café was busy but we were able to find a table for 5 without issue. Service was pleasant and coffee was delivered almost before we had taken our seats! The menu has an option to build your own breakfast, but we chose Omelettes, Bacon and Eggs and some sides....

We had a great coffee. A couple of us had breakfasts. They looked great and those who had them said they tasted good as well. Staff was friendly and moved around tables to fit us in.
