We tend to visit for brunch more than anything else but we do have the occasional lunch. We usually have a dog or two with us and the staff are accommodating of us moving the tables around outside to follow the shade and they have water for dogs outside. The specials menu is good.

Try the Alaskan breakfast, I love it!!!!! This place is super kid friendly with a small play area inside where the kids can entertain themselves while you eat and relax. We are local and often...

Love a lazy Sunday Brunch (all day breakfast menu). Plenty of options and able to cater for food allergies etc. You must have an iced tea in a warm day - delish!

Needed a place for a quick lunch while visiting wineries. Service was friendly but our online booking wasn't written in their book. Luckily there were plenty of spare tables. Good range of menu items. Thai Fish Cakes were light and tasty, the Club Sandwich with chips very filling.

this is one of my favourite cafes because the menu is so fresh and tasty, the kids area is great, getting a little bit tired but nothing a quick refresh couldn't fix

We have dined here a few times now for breakfast and at all times the food has been good. Cafe is child friendly but everytime we have visited in the weekend it has been couples and single people dining. The usual fare, eggs Benedict, bacon and eggs, vegetarian dishes available, the Cafe decor could do with a sort out or... More

I haven't been here for ages but popped in for lunch one day. I found the quality of food has gone down since I was last here. We had seafood pie which was quite nice but would have been nicer with an accompanying salad. The cakes looked very ordinary and there wasn't much choice that day. The coffee was weak... More
