We decided to make things extremely simple, and just ordered 6 toasted sandwiches, these took more than 40 minutes to arrive!! Presentation was terrible with 2 slices of cucumber and a small wedge of tomato on the... More

We do not as a rule make toasted sandwiches and don't have it on our menu as we only have a small toaster. We have some amazing lunch options on our... More

We 'googled' to find a restaurant in Darling and it was listed as the 3rd best restaurant in Darling. If this is the 3rd best, I will have to go back to see what the 2 best are because this place is a gem. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the place. The food was delicious and the service very good....

If you want to relax with a good meal this is the place to go. Friendly service. Cater for those who are on a Banting diet. All meals are prepared with fresh ingredients. This is my place where I reload my batteries before going home.

Stopped for lunch in Darling and scouted round the various cafes and this one took our fancy. We had a mix of sandwiches and salads followed by cake and tea. The chicken mayo sandwich was, according to my husband, "to die for"! The highlight for me was the orange cake with scrummy icing - quite, quite delicious. The owner was... More
