A friendly welcome, inventive breakfasts and gluten-free options galore draw locals, their kiddies, and coeliacs to this tucked-away little cafe. You’ll find somewhere comfortable, be it buzzing front room or idyllic vegie-garden courtyard, or somewhere in-between. Brekkie-with-a-twist might be poached free-range eggs with ham, pungent pesto and roasted beetroot on woodfired spelt sourdough - the house loaf. Pancakes come thick and plate-sized, topped with a tower of poached pears and a ball of orange mascarpone. Lunch might be a top-notch ham or lamb sandwich, or roesti with smoked salmon and avocado.
