Fantastic and unique!
I visited today with my mum for lunch, we had no idea what this little cafe even was. What looks like a small, fancy black coffee shop from the outside, is a fantastically elegant cafe with truly beautiful decor and the best food in the area. And it's also very fun and whimsical. Mum just had tomato bruschetta, which she enjoyed and said was very good and the ingredients were fresh and plentiful. I had one of the more unusual items, a 'loaded big breakfast pie' which I could not finish but not for want of trying. Everything was perfectly done from mushrooms to tomato relish, and YUM. We had no room for anything sweet but were gazing at the wonderful Sweet Treats, the awesome-looking small cakes in the cake display, and the bewildering candy-floss-topped creations known as Super Shakes which we will be bringing the children for. Most of all though, everything in this cafe just works together to make a magical and mood-raising experience which we needed after a hard week with medical troubles in the family. The awesomeness and whimsy of the food, the gorgeous, gorgeous decor, the thronelike chairs, and the soft Florence Welch playing in the background, all just comes together. The best cafe I've been to, just nudging out the Heritage Gardens Cafe my other fave of the Hunter.
