Can’t rate the food as my husband didn’t even get his meal. I had finished mine and my husband was still waiting. 30minutes. We heard a waitress tell someone they were out of French toast what my husband ordered and then I told the waitress that’s what we ordered too. Not apologetic and bad communication and service.
By 10 am they were out of so many items and when we were leaving they were only writing it down on a little window.
Bad service, bad communication from kitchen to service and bad communication and service with the customers.
We are all the way from Sydney and was recommended this cafe and went out of our way to visit and booked weeks in advance. Disappointed is an understatement. Angry and hungry too.
Still confused how you run out of French toast when it’s basically bread, egg and milk. Unless it’s prepared earlier and that’s even worse.
I would not recommend this cafe to anyone.

Staff preparing food while not wearing masks during the mask mandate. Took 45 mins to get a bacon and egg roll. Milkshake was no good. ‘Crispy bacon’ wasn’t crispy. Wouldn’t go back.

The freak shakes aren’t as spectacular as they use to be. Service was fast and the food was hot and fresh. Didn’t feel overly clean and we had to return the cutlery and a cup to be replaced due to being dirty.

Food was great, however, we were jammed in and my daughter had customers bums in her face the whole time while they were being served.

Food and coffee were good. Tables a bit close together but it is a very small cafe.

Food has declined a lot in quality. French toast was not a french toast, it was burnt and seemed old. I’ll never go back.

With the cold weather it would have been good to turn the heating on and if there was a way to close the entrance it would be beneficial for the patrons

Always good food. Bit strange at the start, told the service staff I had a booking and they said they would clear a table for us...went to get my group and then someone else was sitting at the table they had said was ours. We were seated outside and it was freezing. Other then that was fine.
