Lovely counter food, fast service, went midweek so it wasn't too busy. Their sticky buns really are too die for and coffee was good too.

Came one day before (5 minutes before closing at 4.55pm) and was brusquely told “we are closed”. Decided to give it a second try the next day and could not have found a friendlier crew. The sticky buns and coffee were good but not exceptional....More

Right next door to the bike hire and dropped in with no expectations- OMG the food is amazing. We had an omelette and poached eggs on potato rosti. Coffee was perfect and so were our breakfasts. Fantastic find!

Dropped in for a coffee and could not resist the Sticky Buns. Coffee was fantastic as was the sticky bun. Good place to stop at if walking back from the Old Gaol.

This place is so cute. I've been on a gorgeous sunny day and just loved sitting outside, as well as on a freezing cold day where it was lovely and cosy inside. Menu is fabulous.

Offers a varietry of pastry and hot drinks. Their sticky bun is a must try. The cafe is small but they can do take aways for their hot drinks and pastries.

Just had a great brunch here. Initially we thought the menu did not cater well for gluten free with only one item armed as such but actually almost everything could be gluten free. We would recommend this place for great food and suggest they add...More
