Popped in for Sunday brunch, didn't appear overly busy but food took a while! Menu has plenty of choice and sounds great. Food was basic, good but not outstanding! Definitely recommend if you just want a good feed the portion size is generous but nothing fancy!

If the meals are not up to scratch don't send them out and don't make customers wait a long time. Was told they didn't expect to be so busy- really! Lift the game Gusto!

I chose this cafe for its extensive lunch and brunch menu, felt like pasta lunch so ordered the smoked salmon pasta. It was delicious, generous with the salmon and just the right amount of capers to add piquancy. Will be back to try other items on the menu.

I ordered the Hash Stack and was a little surprised to see the hash browns were just triangles out of a packet, like something you'd get from McDonalds.... More

We ordered two coffees and a muffin. Sat outside and waited quite a long time, beginning to think they had forgotten. When it did arrive it was very tasty. Staff in not very clean clothes or aprons, one young man dressed more suited to a skate board park. We did wonder what the kitchen would have been like!

Great food and price. Does take a bit of time to come but well worth the wait. My only negative is seeing babies being carried into kitchen by ?owner / cook. Not a good idea health wise

We had a really good meal there recently and swore that we must go Back for breakfast as the section and prices were good. It's always been popular with the locals and tourists.

Undercooked muffin, poor quality toast and jam. Sad tired decor, not changed for at least 9 years. Good coffee.
