Food that will make you want to "Kiss & Tell"!



Had the pleasure of heading down here just after it's grand opening. Quality of food and the atmosphere are worthy of the 5 star rating, and the owner Shannon has his finger on the pulse at all times, being attentive to the food and the service. Plenty of room, and reasonable prices across the board. Being roadside, there isn't parking directly out front, but more than enough down the nearby streets. The menu is incredibly unique, but doesn't do anything to alienate itself or put you off choosing any of it (in fact, makes me want to try even more). The brisket burger is delicious with a great smokey flavour, and is served in such a creative way that it will make you feel like you're lifting the lid off the BBQ - I won't give anymore away, so make sure you try it when you come down! On your way out, grab a takeaway ice cream and coffee, and get ready for the next time you'll come back!

The best cafe experience I have had for a while! Loved everything about it. Very friendly staff. Coffee great. Very tempting menu with lots of options for people with dietary requirements. And the thing we got most excited about was complementary sparkling water! A few tables at front of cafe. We were in the Green Room. Lovely to have a room to ourselves- and the staff were very attentive so we never felt forgotten about in the room. I can’t rave enough about this place!!!
