Went for coffee and cake 23-Apr-21.The coffee was weak and burning hot. Didn't finish it and went home for a decent cuppa. The almond croissant tasted nice but was a little stale.

Fantastic cafe. Great ambience. I had a relaxing Sunday afternoon lunch with my family. Great menu. Food was amazing, I had a really enjoyable pizza. Coffee is simply brilliant! Staff were so friendly and engaging. This is how a cafe should be. What a great addition to the strip here at The Basin and I am sure other shop owners will benefit. I am not a local, but this will be a regular stop for me. Worth the trip over.

Not only is this the best cafe in The Basin and surrounds, but it is quite truly one of the best I have ever been to. Everything they do, even simple things such as wraps, are done to the highest of standards. It is such a pleasure to have such a high quality cafe in The Basin.The staff are so lovely and dedicated to bringing quality to our little town. So thankful!

We were lucky enough to be the first dinner patrons at 1 in 20 for our staff Christmas party, and everything was absolutely perfect. The food was delicious and plentiful and the service was exceptional. Dave and Allison ensured that we all had a great evening, and at a reasonable price too. Thank you 🙏

This cafe quietly opened their outdoor service a few weeks back. As much as I’m looking forward to full/formal opening, I’m really impressed at the level of service from the team and the quality of the food. The daily muffins baked by the team are simply DEVINE and the team already treats me as a regular (although I suspect my dog is the real reason). Each time I visit, I try a different food item to make sure I get a holistic picture and I’ve not been disappointed with anything yet. Well done team for opening in challenging/unprecedented times and keeping a smile on your face no matter what. Keep up the great work!!!
