Morning tea and coffee one day at Hillyers was really good. Great food and coffee but some of the food was a little expensive for what it was. But other than that I would definitely visit again

This cafe had a nice ambience where the staff were friendly and chatty. It was also a busy cafe for the local workers buying takeaways during their morning tea break. I appreciated the mini grill being an option, as that was ample for my brunch....More

Popped in for afternoon tea food was good sat outside. It could do with a spruce up. Probably wouldn't go back for siting down but would pop in for takeaways. Years ago (25+) was an excellent bakery.
