Unfortunately the picnic platter was really disappointing. It seemed like it had been sitting in the fridge for days. Crackers and breadsticks were soggy, the dip was separated and watery and several blueberries were covered in mould 😞 I also thought the portion size was small for the $70 price tag. Quality and value were both disappointing.
It’s a shame because we were really looking forward to it and we’ve always been happy with the quality of the food at the cafe. This experience wasn’t up to standard.

We enjoyed the hamper but felt that for the quantity of dip there could have been more crackers. The muffins and cakes were thoroughly enjoyed.

Our table was sloping downhill,so not very comfortable.
Too expensive for the quantity.
It was the quickest service anywhere in Sydney so I wonder if it is Pre made.
Great service from the staff.

We drove from Canberra to meet our children and grandchildren for Mothers Day lunch. The menu catered for GF and fusy eaters, we all enjoyed the delicious food and atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and friendly during the very busy lunch period making us feel welcome and providing excellent service.

We really enjoyed our Mother’s Day lunch.
Only negative was that we felt a little rushed when we were accidentally given our bill as soon as our lunch plates were taken away.
We wanted desert and weren’t asked.
Understand the mix up as was on a very busy day.
Thanks for the lovely food and surrounds.
