Great tasting food, well presented, great portions, friendly staff, reasonably priced. Before trying this place out it always looked quite busy. I now know why. 😋

If you want an awesome home made pie try the steak and cheese. Pastry is light but thick enough to hold the pie together and there is real chunks of tender steak inside and it's not all gravey. Very popular they sell out fast. Breakfast...More

When this place first opened several years ago it was a welcome breath of fresh air amongst the greasy take out places in the neighborhood. Good coffee, very tasty cabinet food and awesome sweets and baking. Since new owners bought it out pretty much everything...More

Great service and delicious coffee but not many vegetarian options, unfortunately. =( My hubby loves the cabinet options so we visit often but I usually don't buy food as there aren't many vegetarian options. The cakes are tastey though...

Great food & great coffee in an old gas station. A selection of pastry & savories to help keep you going. Coffee by Bella the barista is excellent. Plenty of parking off street is a definite plus.

It doesn't look like much but well worth the visit. We had a home made pie and the eggs. Seriously delicious! The coffee is really nice too :)

Best cream and jam doughnuts ever. This cafe is a hidden gem! The food is brilliant, and the staff are all really friendly, offering great service. Pretty quirky cafe, with loads of character. A must if you like good cafe food!

I didn't like it at all over priced coffee I wouldn't drink 2/10 and that's for being open ... Don't bother keep driving there are better places a little further down the road
