Walk in past the fresh herbs growing at the door and take a table or sit at the kitchen bar.  It almost feels like sitting in a large relaxed studio as the kitchen prepares the dishes. The space is welcoming, with Australian artists and designers regularly renewing the look. The bike hanging on one wall nods to the bike making side of the business and explains why there are so may riders around.
