Great staff, variety of indoor/ outdoor seating options available and delightful Brunch Lunch Menus with some unusual options. The staff were attentive; the food was yummy and I would certainly make it a recommended place for a mid-morning snack.

We visited for brunch on a Saturday, the cafe was reasonably busy, for a suburban location. The meals did take a while to arrive, but weren't expensive and tasted good. The staff were friendly, and over all an enjoyable meal out.
