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.
