“Had a fantastic Sunday lunch with friends! Roast beef yummy! And the service was tops even when we stayed a bit after closing time, did not get the feeling that we had overstayed our welcome. Will go again and try the cakes next time.Thank you!!” Rosemarie Steffen, Facebook
“Wonderful spot in Pringle Bay! Amazing food, great atmosphere and Leigh and Donna are just so lovely! Will always be back!” Fran Denton, Facebook
“We went for breakfast there recently for a birthday. The place is cozy, has beautiful art all around and a warm, comfortable, welcoming feel. The waiting staff are quick to respond and the owner adds a personal touch. When I mentioned that I'm vegan, he was quick to ask for suggestions on how he could help. My friend had a regular breakfast. I had a ciabatta with roasted veggies and red pesto (without the parmesan and cheese) with some chips - delicious! The coffee was good. Chairs were comfy and all round, a really good experience. Will definitely be back!” Natalie V, Tripadvisor
"So excited! Don't know why we haven't visited before today! What a lovely little coffee shop! Great menu selection, friendly staff and lovely setting! Breakfast was delicious and the presentation was neat and special. Love love love it!"  Carla Cheyn-Rossouw, Facebook
“We would have had breakfast here every day if we'd only discovered this place sooner! The atmosphere is fun and homey with comfortable seating and cool art on the walls. The service was very friendly and fast and the food was simply excellent! We loved the flapjacks and I had the eggs benedict with salmon and a chococino. I loved that almond milk was available as a substitute! They were quite busy, but we were able to get a table without a reservation for brunch around 10:30 am.” michelejeannine, Tripadvisor
