My Comment

I was touched by the kind and polite attitude of cafe staff.

She called out daughter by name several time and our daughter looks delighted.

The cafe runs only in Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays, but you can join experience activitiy on week day.

Sadly we did not have enough time to join experience activity to make silk products, but decided to do it next time we come to the cafe.

You need booking for lunch but you don’t for cafe.
