The place is beautifully set up, comfy and cosy and the staff are friendly.
The owners are on site – Gareth is the full time chef and Paul makes kick ass coffee.
The food….. superb!! If you’re a fan of good old fashioned home cooking and baking, hit this place up.
Gorgeous cheesecake with an after dinner mint surprise, mouthwatering quiche and heaps of other scrummy options in the cabinet and on the menu.
Can’t wait to go back – their panko crumbed mac and cheese sounds delicious!!!
Visited January 2013
over cooked and lacked in flavour.
I ordered the lasagna and it was very disappointing. It consisted of just mince and packet bought pasta with a plain sauce; no vegetables, herbs or spices, it did taste very plain. The salad that I had with the lasagna was rather wilted.
When I informed manager of our experience she acted surprised and didn’t offer any refund.
For what i got, it was over priced.
Hopefully they take on this feedback to improve their menu, the cafe it’s got lot of potential.
UPDATE: This cafe is now under new management. Lovely people and great service. Still a beautiful spot and there is still a fab kids picnic box AND new sandpit toys! But…unfortunately the food is no longer made on the premises. Gone are the amazing homemade cheesecakes and gorgeous kids cupcakes and in are lamingtons and pies. Top marks for free fluffies though! Our next visit will be to rate the coffee…!
