I met with family for a girly lunch, and again, I was not disappointed. My guests gushed over their calamari salad, and pulled lamb pie respectively, whilst I finished every morsel on my plate of zucchini and haloumi fritters accompanied by a fresh greens and pear salad. The kiddies menu is ideal and the juniors tucked into their child-size pizzas.... More

We visited this café with a group of 6. When we walked in we knew we had made a great choice. It was so warm and cosy inside, lots of people already enjoying the food, and friendly service. We ordered a variety of foods, coffees and treats and everything was delicious. Prices were very reasonable. Great little café.

Visited the cafe on a cold wintery day, staff was great we chose to sit opposite the cost fire place to keep warm. We had coffee and cake and believe me their Passion fruit cheesecake is one of the best I have tried so far. I would highly recommend this cafe to any food lover.

Dropping-in unannounced with a large group of friends, it was fortunate that we were about 20-30 minutes ahead of the lunch crowd who followed us into the popular Olinda Cafe as it allowed the staff to be very generous with us in putting several tables together. With a warm and inviting ambience, we settled in quickly and were served up... More

On a wet spring day, the fireplace made this a cosy, warm and inviting place to have lunch. Very busy when we went on a Saturday and the service was rather slow. The carbonara pasta was ordinary but the salt and pepper calamari was delicious. On the pricey side. Colour pencils provided for the kids.
