Quite setting suitable for relaxed breakfasts and lunches. Also suitable for small functions like baby showers and intimate birthday parties. Formal meeting venue available. Nice fire in winter. Just go and chill out and relax

Recently I had the most delicious breakfast at meade cafe in George. What a treat! I'm including a photo of my meal, so beautifully arranged and tasty. Friendly service and reasonable pricing too. I would definitely recommend a visit if you're in the area

Really loved this place. Entrance outside does not reveal anything going on the inside. Actually very misleading. How ever once inside it bursts with local decorations. Super cute. Lovely food. Vegan options available. Dog friendly

The Mead keeps getting better. There used to be a print shop at the back of the restaurant, facing Meade Street, which is no longer there and has been converted to a beautiful lounge. Lunch was very good and the service was friendly. Though I...More
