Children's Party's At The Cafe

Children's Party's - The Good Ole' Fashion Way!
Joanne and I both have children of our own, and we understand the hassle that can arise from trying to find just the right location. We are here to help! You might have noticed the café is surrounded by a lot of grass area, most of which can be seen from the windows of the café. This allows the kids to run about and have fun while you relax and watch (we love it too!)
Our kids parties are structured to provide all the food, all the entertainment, all the fun. In fact all you need to provide is the children!
Willow the Book Fairy, (known to some of you as the Collins Book Fairy) is available as part of the package, with lots of songs and games, stories and fun, and a complimentary copy of “Going On A Bear Hunt” for the birthday boy or girl to keep as a gift.
We also have our Traditional Birthday Party, where kids can experience parties the way they were 150 years ago, with traditional games and activities for the kids to enjoy.
We assure you, a party with us, is a party where you don't need to worry about a thing!
Contact Joanne, our Functions Coordinator, at, she would be delighted to give you all the information you need.

Friday Knitting Club

The Friday Knitting Club is a wonderful way to meet new people and indulge in whatever craft tickles your fancy! Organized and run by Tye Neich,of Merry Munchkin Designs, local Knitwear Designer and Spinner, the Knitting Club is designed to give crafty people a place to meet, chat, enjoy lunch, and relax with their chosen craft. You don't have to knit, you can bring along any craft hobby you enjoy, and the option to learn to knit is always open! (Secretly Tye hopes to convert the entire world to knitting…) Spinning Classes are also available on request and Tye is happy to have a go at helping you out with any knitting dilemma…. (She might, in some cases, be learning right alongside you, but she will try to help with any problem!) The Knitting Club is VERY child friendly, and the lovely Joanne will provide you with a wonderfully filling lunch, tea and coffee, and scones with jam and cream, all for only $10.00 a head, and $5.00 per child for Lil’ Lunch Bag & Craft Activity. Let us know if you are interested in coming along, so we can make sure there are enough scones for all (they go really quick!)

We will be hosting our very first wine tasting evening on February 23rd this year.
