Great little cafe, consistently serves great food from either daily/weekly specials or main menu. Exciting pairings of flavours, freshly cooked and using seasonal produce.

Finally tried out this cafe and was not disappointed. Staff are assertive but nice, food smelt delicious, and my drink and cake (fruit stone, very nice) were lovely. My only complaint would be the other cafe patron chewing the ear off one of the waitresses,...More
