Food was fresh and tasty, service was prompt and friendly, as it always seems to be when I visit. The zucchini toastie special should be made a regular menu item - terrific!

Food is great. Coffee is good. Staff are excellent. Nice shady spot on a hot day. Only thing that could be improved is that the tables, while charming, are a bit small and rickety.

Unfortunately the waitress was misinformed about what was in a meal and I had to ask for something else. The replacement meal (very simple) took so long that we left, having already waited 50 minutes for the first try.

The waitress was very gracious and helped as much as she could, comping our coffees and apologising several times.

I will go again, with caution, as I believe this to be a well-run business which aims for excellent customer service.

It was noisy (but busy, so not unexpected and very manageable). The spot were sat in was lovely - a little
booth. The food was delicious and well priced, the coffee was amazing and the staff were lovely (as usual).

The reservation for outdoors was in direct Sun when under cover would have been preferred. Eventually we were brought inside but not at such a convivial table. Staff were helpful enough though.
Some more gluten free or dairy free options on the menu could be helpful. If the main menu does offer gf/df options it would be helpful if that were indicated on the menu itself.
I love the interesting tastes and ingredients blended in the Aranda Bowl. Fab!

Having chosen an outside spot we were given just that - in the blazing sun without a brolly or the benefit of trees as other tables had, so asked to be moved inside.
We were then given the order of an adjoining table; simple fix there.
Our order was a little wrong, but again simply fixed, but meant we all starting eating at a different time.
Great place, good ambience, but maybe not coping too well with the busyness of end of year?

Delicious healthy meals with generous portions. Great ambience, lovely gardens/growing veggies to walk little ones around when they get restless. Perfect for families. Would recommend parking at the primary school and walking up as parking spaces fill up fast. 5 stars.

I loved the ambience, location, and concept especially kitchen garden. However, very limited options for coeliacs which makes dining here as a family hard as both of my children are coeliac. For example, does not have a coeliac-friendly fryer. Also - surprisingly - the server told me they re-use gluten-contaminated cardboard cake boxes to handle gluten-free small goods. I get that it is good to recycle and reduce waste, but instead of actively aiming to minimise cross-contamination this food-handling method increases risk. I just don’t get it. Coeliacs won’t have an anaphylactic reaction, but cross-contamination will cause a very unpleasant gut reaction and turn what is supposed to be a lovely experience into an horrendous one. I don’t think we will come here again as a family.
