A very nice 'hippy' vibe and food style. The food was tasty and filling. Well patronised and deservedly so. Great atmosphere!

Stopped here in 30+ degrees, and this was the only place in town that was able to make us a decaf iced coffee. Most excellent, with cream and chocolate sprinkles too! Came back twice for a topup and just as good each time

This is a nice little cafe in Hanmer Springs where you can have pasta and tapas as well as a variety of salad offerings. They do great cappuccinos as well. Service is very good and staff is pleasant.

Really poor. Waited 25 minutes for coffee and then delivered us the wrong ones. Mine came out burnt and another 10 minutes and nothing. Got up and asked for money back.
