    Lovely, bustling Cafe with good menu. Fabulous fresh food and vegetarian options available. Can be noisy when busy. Owner presented my Mum with a little cake and candle for her 86th birthday which was a lovely surprise and sang " Happy birthday" to her. Excellent service, good and Coffee. Highly recommend.

    Food was super tasty. Great for GF options and Non GF, equally tasty. Coffee was good, came hot to the table, provided from a friendly Dining Room Attendance Staff. Seating slightly cramped, operation was ok, could have been smoother. Love the quaint courtyard in back area. Will bring the dog to the courtyard on our next visit!

    Service perfunctory. Food very ordinary for the price. Despite advertised closing at 2.30, they were stacking up chairs at 2.05. They just wanted to go home and let us know it! Wouldn't bother going again.

    Really, really slow. Smashed avo was freezing and the rest of the avo was in cubes on the side. It didn’t have dukkah as promised in menu.

    Great food as always with generous serves. The service is excellent. Attentive without being obtrusive. I like the outside area at the back. The menu now has a middle eastern touch which was delicious but the usual things, like smashed avocado, albeit with a twist, are still available.
