Love this little coffee shop, tucked away within a nursery. The atmosphere is serene and it served as a wonderful spot for a casual meeting. It was a little tricky to find using Uber, as navigation takes you to a back gate instead of the...More

Tucked away inside Starke Ayers Garden Centre is this magical little coffee shop and restaurant. Some quaint, olde world charm, Fraiche Ayres offers a delicious breakfast and lunch menu for shoppers and visitors alike.

Decided to try this place for breakfast, ended up having lunch instead at 11am. Food is nice for a nursery cafe and service is friendly!

Very impressed with both the quality of food and service. Five of us had dishes from the special breakfast menu and the "ranchero poached eggs" came out tops. Delicious coffee too!

Good for breakfast and brunch. Can sit outside (under cover for wet days) and be amongst all the plants. Also a large gardening store within complex.

A regular weekly haunt of ours I can highly recommend their wraps - but do ask for a doggie bag as you won't get through one on your own!

A nice venue in a lovely setting. Outside as well as inside seating. Convenient for a stop after browsing the floral options. Menu is limited and lacks excitement and creativity which was a disappointment.

The service when we arrived was good but the longer we stayed it seemed to deteriorate. Drinks were forgotten and food delivery was slow. While the apple crumble portion is tasty and very large, there is no crumble so it was more like an apple...More
