The menu was reasonably extensive. The quality and presentation of the food was reasonable. The service was sporadic.

As a fussy eater my mum found lots of choice, all our meals were great, with the added advantage of the specials menu.

Stopped here for morning coffee with our two dogs. We sat outside in the "sun trap" courtyard which was very pleasant and we were made to feel most welcome as the waitress brought "treats" for our dogs - a nice touch. Will definitely return! 😃
