Great cafe with lots of choices of healthy food, friendly staff. You can also buy all your health food needs - an extensive range. A relaxing spot to have coffee to sit in the window and watch the scenery or outside at the back on the lawn under an umbrella.

Locals come here for bulk food, great coffee, and good food. Blend in! Stop by, grab a coffee or a chocolate, order from the delicious menu (I had a mocha and a vehicle wrap, both delicious), grab more items to go (soup, cake), buy some nuts or muesli too! Friendly staff too.

Excellent food, great service, we found this cafe by sheer chance as it is in a side street, what a great surprise. We would highly recommend this cafe/restaurant

What a find - delightful little store with all kinds of interesting products - and wonderful food and excellent coffee. Friendly owner is most helpful and her signature rhubarb cake is not to be missed. The soaps she sells are really nice too - we will be ordering a few more.

A wide array of dishes amidst a plethora of organic produce. Picked up some pepper berry which is apparently scarce due to the gin producers using it in their concoctions.

Lonely Planet listed the coffee as fabulous and to try the delicious rhubarb cake. They were right on both - well worth dropping in. Also great selection of chocolates and lollies
