Once a month I meet with a group for breakfast at this restaurant. We have been doing this for some time and find it a great place to meet and eat. The service is good and the food is great.

Coffee's great, small meal menu offers something for most tastes. It's a little pricy but the customers don't seem to mind and really the atmosphere is worth the slightly elevated costs.

For something a little different I highly recommend this little hidden treasure, within the Lee Rowan gardening centre. The coffee was very nice as were the morning tea goodies. Definitely try.

Two fantastic fresh salads for lunch. Salt and pepper squid special of the day and a chicken and walnut salad with pickled onion. Nice atmosphere, decent service. A bit on the expensive side but worth every penny.

My wife and I have lunch here 2 or 3 times each year. The cafe is set inside a garden nursery business, so it doesn't collect passing foot traffic. You kinda have to know it's there. Food is always fresh and the premises clean.

We visit this cafe very regularly and then wander through the plant nursery. Parking is easy and although reservations are taken, it is not necessary.

Lunch a couple of times with standard fare. Coffee and cake was on the pricey side and he cake was dry. Nice ambience but I think there are better options

This is the second time we have been here in a fortnight. The cafe seating is amongst the decor that the garden nursery sells. A lovely atmosphere, especially sitting outside where all the plants are for sale. It appears that the cafe is mostly run...More
