    Great place, food choices were plentiful and it was quiet enough to talk and catch up with everyone. Lovely shady spot on a hot day too.

    Really enjoyed our brunch at Tasting Deck - service was friendly and very quick. Suitable for our 18mth and 4yr old with the added attraction of the playground. Our 96yr old struggled to hear conversations because it was quite loud on the deck area but it was a hive of activity so to be expected. Staff were most friendly and helpful and I was glad we booked a table as it was quite busy. Food was yummy and good size servings, with lots of choice for our varied age group! Also nicely presented. Plenty of parking too! Highly recommend.

    When we arrived all the disabled parking bays were occupied but we got a parking space that was better and even closer! The booked table for four was ready and waiting, and, easily accessible. Lunch menu is varied and also has some all-day items from breakfast menu. We all ordered a different dish and commented that there were several items that we would have been happy to select. My Reuben sandwich was excellent, as were the thick cut chips that accompanied it. My mate had the burger which he said was great - and the thick cut chips were also a winner. Our wives had two different salads, which were rated as very good but then they pinched some of our chips (so much for diets). We finished with coffee, which was an excellent blend. I had to try the Italian hot chocolate, which was superb. We have been here in the past for breakfast (extremely good) and will certainly be back.

    We had a delicious meal under cover. There were 6 of us. Noise level from other tables & probably us, too high. Had trouble hearing each other. If weather ok would probably try & sit outside next time.

    Always a winner. It's our favourite local spot. We love that we can have the best of both worlds with the kids keeping happy in the playground after they've had their meals. Food was fresh, tasty, perfectly cooked.

    Four of us were there on a very wet day so not too many other guests. The food is always good and good value. Service.....the removal of finished plates....was not good...too slow! I know there is a problem in the restaurant industry finding staff. We all ate different meals and agreed they were of a high standard.

    I had mad a reservation 5 days prior. On arrival, long bench table for 4 people with bench type chairs was where we where to be seated. As we are quite elderly and one of our party is on a walking stick, I asked if we could have regular chairs with backs. Staff, though super busy were very accommodating. Food was delicious as always. We will return again though I might phone to make a reservation by phone to ensure we don’t have the chair situation again.

    I’m ALMOST of a mind to to not give a highly recommended review. Why? It is such a gem of excellence in all respects that droves of new additional patrons might overwhelm its uniqueness of excellent and outstanding food and service seldom found in upmarket (dare I even identify it only as a) cafe - it is far more than that! What a gem!

    This is the first time I have experienced very poor service at this cafe . But it was atrocious & no apology . Coffees came at all different times , I person received their breakfast . I didn’t receive mine when I questioned the staff bought the docket to show me it hadn’t been ordered ! Yet it was clearly on the docket!! Still no apology , just I will get it for you now !! Meanwhile others had finished . Mine plate came out & the poached eggs etc have been virtually thrown on the plate. The poached eggs were so small they looked like 2 golf balls on the plate!! The whole experience was a disaster ! As it is a local cafe we will try again but if I have any bad experience again that will be it!!

    Great food. You can just scan the QR code on the table to order and they bring it to your table. Otherwise, you can go and order, get a number and they bring it to you. Tap water is self serve - they have never been out of jugs or cups when I've been there. Has kids play equipment, which can be seen from dining area. I love this place.
