    I love visiting this place during the week early! Its an adventure and great for visitors too. There are lovely gardens, an outdoor gazebo, a pretty fountain, a delightful florist shop, a cafe, a restaurant and even animals for all to enjoy. Dont forget to check out Kevin Bacon, the pig, though I must say the goat stole the show one day we visited by lounging around in the food trough!

    Because it is so popular, you need to book a table, otherwise line up for a coffee and cake with everyone else at the takeaway section and be prepared to wait for it. The down sides are the long waits for service or takeaway and the lack of parking. Sydney parking is poor and this area is dreadful. Go early if you can, car pool and try during the week, not the busy weekends.

    This is such a haven in the bustling city. Beautiful gardens, animals for children to enjoy, great coffee and plenty of food options. Such a relaxing place to visit - so long as everyone is not dragging the heavy metal chairs.

    Great food and service, and the atmosphere is a great example of Sydney to show your visitors/family. Will always return here!

    Good food, and the place has a very nice decor to the place, but the service was unfriendly and made me feel unwelcome.

    Nice coffee and pastries but the wait for take away coffee is a little too long. They could do with an extra coffee station. The facilities for kids are really good. The freshly made donuts were a big hit but they are a little bit expensive at $3.50 each considering they are only mini donuts.

    I love this restaurant, food was great and staff were nice. Lovely little stalls out side is also enjoyable in both look and taste of some cake. But it was hassel to look around the parking area.

    Ok, we liked the atmosphere the vibe, but overall for a family of 4 it was very stressfull, took us 40 minute drive to get there, another 15 minutes to find a park, 30 minutes to get coffee, 20 minutes to get a few doughnouts for the kids and an hour wait just to get a seat for lunch. Our table was bumped by everyone that walked by. Sorry but its not a relaxed oasis but a very busy noisy and stressful piece of industial land.
    The shopping at the italian goods shop was very very expensive, most goods we can get for almost half price, 200g of salami & 200gm of chesse was $22 yes $22 DOLLARS, first and last visit

    I love this place -before abour 8 on the weekends it is a lovley relaxed oasis. After that, it is a bit crazy busy, but still fun. Having a sprog in tow, I now prefer eating in their outdoor area, where we can go visit the animals ( chooks and pigs) if restlessness strikes. The food options are limited, with little stalls to choose from but still great quality and the coffee is always good here. Great little play area too!

    I enjoyed a leisurely week day lunch in the gorgeous grounds. I have heard of the weekend queues and have no patience for them. It's a lovely place to enjoy a meal and the food is lovely overall. It's one part eaterie, one part organic farm and there's even some cute animals on the grounds. It's definitely worth exploring. Come during the week or book ahead for a weekend.

    I usually enjoy having my breakfast at the grounds until yesterday, we were 10 mins late for brekky so we had lunch instead. I ordered king prawn linguine that I couldn't eat! the prawns did not smell nice and the combination of the whole dish was poor! I had to swap my dish meal with my husband who ordered chicken schnitzel. the chicken was OK not much flavour. and on top of this we were seated at a rusty table which left two big marks of rust on my husbands elbow shirt! I left the grounds with big disappointment.
