I frequently visit this cafe for coffees, brunch, snacks throughout the day. Panini, toasties, and coffee are fantastic and the staff are friendly. Grab a coffee and relax next to the river free of the busy traffic in town.

This is a great cafe to buy a coffee and relax by the boat harbour. The coffee is always perfect and the crepes are awesome. Best in town. Sunday brunch - perfect Saturday coffee then stroll by the harbour - yes please

Good coffee and good cabinet food in a delightful location. I was super impressed at the barista confirming whether or not it would be ok to use their chocolate syrup in a soy mocha as it contained dairy. This sort of attention to detail is...More
