We stopped at grape escape for coffee and let the kids running around. Our two and four year olds loved it. Had a good area to run, play ground and also some bunnies to look at. The coffee was lovely and cake was amazing. We also enjoyed visiting the cheese shop next door. Sooo yummy.

My son and i had lunch here a few weeks ago. We both loved our meals. Delicious. The range of meals on the menu was impressive and it was hard to choose what to eat. I guess we will have to come back :-) Looking forward to eating here again.

Hazelnut & Kahlua Cake is with the calories! Nice setting, waitress was funny in a good way. The first coffee was terrible so I let them know and they remade one that was much much better, without fuss and I wasn't made to feel picky. All in all a nice experience

Recently I attended a Bridal shower at this venue.There were 12 of us.Although it was the responsibly of the organizers to make the table and any decorations bridal,it was a shame that the restaurant made no effort.It would have been nice to have a white paper runner alone provided for the table. We felt somewhat on a timetable because we... More

We ordered four different meals - all very good. Truly excellent potato and fish cake and really good passionfruit cheesecake. Hope they keep up with their generous portions. Highly recommend this place.

We met up with friends for lunch a couple of weeks ago on a lovely sunny day, and sat outside round the back on the large deck. Everything on the menu sounded so delicious that it was hard to choose something but I eventually narrowed it down to the blue cheese and spinach soufflé and my partner had the open... More

We visited the cheese shop on our own bike tour today with friends. We actually visited this place exactly a year ago and were super excited to go back and taste some cheeses before buying some. In fact this time we were quite disappointed because they have now put a $5 charge on tasting any cheese, and when you do,... More
