While the food here is mainly classic lunchtime fare, people also flock here for the ambience at this cafe-cum-art gallery. Sink into a comfy armchair and enjoy your coffee, sarmie, wrap or salad while surveying the eclectic mix of local artwork hanging on the rough exposed stone walls - the original walls of a heritage building dating back to 1770.

Hours: Sun-4.00pm Mon-Fri; 9.00am-2.00pm Sat.
