Okay place for a coffee and a sweet. Service tends to be slow as the staff know the town regulars so there is a lot of chit chat during service. Not a place to rush in and out of. Seating area is crowded and tables are often dirty, not wiped. I've seen a dog in the kitchen a few times.... More

The coffee is roasted locally from beans grown and shipped from their own estate in East Africa. This is a great place to stop for a morning coffee or for a light lunch.

This is tiny - and hard to navigate movement within. The service was amazing - pricey but delicious sweets. Coffee is exceptional - love it and would buy some to take home next time!

Delicious selection of tea and Tea prepped with care and individually filled tea bag. Came back for a latte the next day and the cofffe has a beautiful flavour and definitely feels freshly roasted.

This place never disappoints. The food quality is high, fresh bakery items, good lunch selection and delicious soups, and the coffees and lattes are so good. Plus, the staff is so nice and attentive, always working hard like they are all owners and really care. Keep up the great work!

I often drive from BlueMountain to Thornberry to grab a coffee at Ashanti and sit out front and people watch. Last week I stopped in with girlfriends and once again had the best cappuccino ever! They also have sandwiches and a great selection of baked goods. Mmm good!

We had a thai cocount curry chicken soup and a sausage bun - they were very good. The place is very quaint and artsy - as my daughter put it. We also had an espresso and a cupcake - AMAZING!

The coffee is fantastic but the small restaurant is hot in the summer, noisy and usually crowded. I sit there sometimes to have a latte but it is not ideal for a private conversation or for a relaxing time. I prefer to place my order and take it to go.
