A group of us 'oldies' enjoyed a pretty basic morning tea, but the plates passing us were impressive & enjoyed by neighboring tables patrons. The service was pleasant & cakes & treats selected were terrific.
Coffee was better than average but sitting back on their raised deck area was most relaxing & allowed a flow of conversation & banter - so rare in enclosed cafes... & that is often what it is MOST about, a place to chat & laugh!
As a local I am now enticed to sneak in for their afternoon drinks & music, & grab some of the delicious plates on offer.

A very pleasant surprise right on the edge of the road! When we first looked at the menu, it was rather underwhelming - typical fare found in any cafe. First impressions are very often wrong as in this case. My husband’s burger was fresh and brilliantly tasty. I had the halloumi stack/salad and it was absolutely to die for - chargrilled, fresh veg and beautiful pesto. My Bloody Mary was great, and just as we were leaving the Sunday arvo entertainment was starting in the garden. A lovely little place, we’ll be back!

Visited today with my partner and enjoyed a lovely breakfast, we also had a pot of tea, with proper tea leaves and it was a nice hot strong cup of tea, at least two cups. There is also a "specials" board. It is set back from the main road where you can either eat in the.garden or inside. The setting is rustic and staff very polite and helpful.

They are open on a Friday night for meals but best to book, they also have themed nights.

I would definitely recommend this cafe. xxx

Less about the food than a totally relaxing garden setting. Can sit indoors or out in the garden and is very pleasant for breakfast or lunch. Nothing special about the food but they did an eggs Benedict that was all you could ask for. They do coffee well, the coffee creamer was excellent.
