We found this place online and the reviews were pretty decent. My wife and I turned up here this morning around 7.30am. After parking right out front we walked in to be greeted in a warm friendly manner by Emma who seemed to be in charge. We couldn’t get over all of the fantastic wall adornments and paraphenalia. There were lots of booth tables and counter space available but we spotted a dining table inside the VW Kombi shell so we decided on that.

Emma came by to take our breakfast order so we kicked things off with 2 hot Lattes with 2% milk & hazelnut syrup. They use Peerless Coffee Roasters here. Our Lattes were made by Emma and brought to our table within a few short minutes by Emma. We asked for glasses of cold water, a fresh squeezed Orange Juice, a Biscuit Scramble, a Classic Ham Benedict and 2 bowls of Fresh Fruit. Our Lattes tasted very good….better than we expected but hey now we know they have great coffees.

Our bowls of Fresh Fruit came out quickly followed by my big glass of Orange Juice. Our fabulous looking breakfast dishes arrived in a short time at our table. Everything tasted really good…my wife loved her Biscuit Scramble and the ham on my Eggs Benedict was so succulent. We loved our creamy Lattes so much we ordered another 2 to enjoy with our breakfast plus a BLT Sandwich on a Ciabatta and a big slice of Banana Bread for lunch on the plane trip home. We thanked Emma for her fantastic friendly service. Gee we felt spoiled rotten and can’t wait to come back again !
