My family came for lunch and from greeting to paying bill The young lady serving us (Neven i believe her name was) was fantastic as were all the staff. The owners of this cafe should be extremely proud of their establishment and staff.

The breakfast's are big and tasty, the burgers are a good effort at the American style and I highly recommend the 'Hold The Calories' it's a grilled... More
