Workers Compensation Insurance.
Every effort is made to keep prices down. Most
ingredients are Australian, many organic, including our staff. We
run a honest business and pay our taxes. What we offer is unlikely
to be imported from China or similar low cost countries. Our
industry is not Government subsidized.
The till is programed with weekday prices. The Sat
& Sun price difference is added at the end.
We are not a fast food restaurant. However, we will get the orders to
you as fast as possible.
If you move tables after ordering, your order may
be delayed as we do not have a GPS on you.
Splitting itemized bills results in slower
service. During busy times, this may not be possible.
Children are great. Please keep them effectively
supervised for OHS reasons.
If you are pressed for time, during quite moments we
usually can accomodate your request.
If you want to eat in a hurry,
don't. It is bad for your health.

leash. Water bowls are in the courtyard.
Tap water is available. Please help yourself at
the water station next to the cake fridge.
