This place is within a very short walk to the Crowne Plaza which is wonderful! It has quick service and a delicious breakfast. Friendly staff and a great cup of coffee. Indoor and outdoor seating...would highly recommend!

Highly recommend savoury or sweet eats. This is a hit with the locals for good reasons. Affordable eats for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Eat in or take away.
