A lovely rainy morning saw us searching for any alternative to camp cooking and thankfully we found this place. Very friendly staff, extremely fast service and delicious food and most importantly great coffee. Easy location, opposite the water at the end of Airlie Main Street.

Unfortunately, we didn't eat here but wished we had the menu and meals delivered to tables around us looked delicious. We did stop in for a couple of Espresso Martinis though, which were lovely. Nice atmosphere and lovely staff.

Gnokki and Veal, good tasty food and adequate portions. Gnokki (potatoes) was soft and melt in your mouth. Veal was tender but chewy at extremities. Wine average choices and Service rushed to allow for second sitting.
