There are a wide variety of absolutely delicious cheesecakes! There is even a flourless option for those who require a gluten-free alternative. The cheesecakes and cakes are so delicious that I've already driven 50 KM merely for a piece of heaven!

I am absolutely in love with the pork belly and gluten free chocolate cake. Their coffees and teas are good. The service can be worked on but the food makes up for it. A must for any foodie, student, dessert freak, friends, family, just anyone.

We stopped at the Birdcage for a casual lunch at The Birdcage in the plein (just off Bird St). Although their website is all about weddings, they offer a full lunch menu. The cafe also has a lot of household items for sale (ceramics, etc.)....More
