Had the best chicken salad sandwich ever which included real marinated chicken fillet cooked warm in the sandwich. Also had a green smoothie which was delicious. The service was very quick even though quite busy.

This little gem on a back street is nice with excellent coffee and cake deals. It has very clean facilities with various seats inside and simple table and chairs outside on the verandah.
