    Three of us dined here on Monday evening. My husband enjoyed his pasta but my dish was indistinguishable from what was listed on the menu. Was supposed to be potato gnocchi but I actually have no idea what it was. Tasted like nothing. My friend had chicken with pumpkin and blue cheese sauce. She said the chicken was over cooked and the sauce didn’t have much flavour. I have eaten here several times before but based on this weeks meal I would go elsewhere next time. Husband and I shared a tiramisu which was lovely. Friend enjoyed her sticky date pudding. Unfortunately in today’s climate where there are so many other restaurants to spend our money, I would not eat here again. Staff were nice.

    I had heard good things about this cafe and to some degree I was disappointed. I'm not a fan of ordering at the counter, however I suppose it alleviates the bill splitting problem. The food was ok not as outstanding as I thought it would be, nice seafood platter - too much soggy salad though. The plus was that it was quiet which is usually not the case with cafes - but maybe it wasn't as full as it could be. Would I go back again - probably not - I was expecting a better experience.

    There were three of us for lunch. The food was good, as was the service. Coffee was good. The only thing was, we had the table near the sliding door to the outside and being a cool day, the constant opening and closing was an issue. I realise not a lot can be done about this and on a nice day it wouldn't have been a problem. We will definitely be back but request another table if it's cold.

    Our first visit here and we found the staff to be friendly, the coffees delicious and the service pretty good! We had the Bruschetta and also the Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and Avo (Listed as a BLTA on the menu - I've always seen it as a 'BLAT' on other cafe menu's but all good). I chose the Focaccia Bread (which is stated to be made on site) and it was toasted to perfection. Both meals were very enjoyable and filling. My only con was that the menu states it is lettuce on the BLTA but it was actually only baby beetroot leaves, which was disappointing to me. Despite this minor hiccup, we would be very happy to return though. ADDIT: We booked our table through the "OpenTable" site and received an email confirmation. However, when we arrived at the restaurant, they had NO record of our booking. Very annoying and a waste of time. We were lucky enough to be able to secure a table as there were 2 spare but if it had been full, the story would have been quite different.

    Very reasonably priced. Meal was tasty, I needed gluten free options, there were heaps. Toast was undercooked, so being gluten free it was soggy. However, the meal was a generous serve and the rest of the items were delicious. My companions meal also delicious. All food presented very well, looked beautiful. Coffee was great!

    A lovely dinner, a little cold in room temperature though. All meals except for one was lovely. My mum ordered bruschetta and the toast was very plain and super challenging to cut with a butter knife. At The end of our meal our server brought over some chocolates to share and to offer the birthday boy a fortified wine as a birthday treat. We would dine here again.

    Unfortunately our meal came out over thirty minutes late. I had to see why it was taking so long to arrive…they had lost the docket. The staff did apologise and offered us free drinks and gave us free chips as an apology. Food is good. Service generally is good.
