Stopped in recently on a Sunday morning for coffee and cake. Both were great. Venue is north facing, bright and sunny, well protected from any wintery weather from the south. We'll worth a visit.

Been looking for a good coffee house, i am so glad and so excited and keen for ground coffee. Amazing coffee and really friendly staff. The atmosphere awesome pastries and cakes. I really love the rustic and very easy look of the interior.

Ground coffee is a great stop for a cup of excellent coffee with a friend or alone. The vibe is fantastic and I love the selection of snacks and drinks they have available. I've never ordered something here that I haven't enjoyed.

A simple, classy, light interior with an open north facing deck complimented by great, friendly staff, and absolutely sublime coffee. To round that out the music is fantastic (modern rock and indie, depending on the flavour of the day), and the facilities clean and fresh....More

Coffee is phenomenal! But it will separate the true coffee drinkers from the caffeine guzzlers! Their treats are also amazing! Carrot cake will change your life and not to mention their cheesecake. The staff are incredible. Best coffee spot in Hilton by far!

Five stars for their coffee, service, nibbles and mini-meals. Located close to the freeway with ample parking and a nice outlook. This is the place to go to for a really great cup of coffee
