106 Latrobe Terrace
Open from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Remy’s can get quite crowded because there are plenty of activities happening here all the time like Taco Tuesday’s, Jazz nights and Monday half-price burgers. This diner serves big meals and drinks with friends but it is set up as a courtyard so it’s perfect for your furry companion.

“Remy’s is a funky local hangout great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. But, if I had to pick a time to go, I would say afternoon/dinner is the best time as the burgers and fries are great every time and there is usually live music at that time. Remys is also a dog friendly cafe which is a massive tick in my book.”

This cafe has an airy backyard garden for your pets and a selection of doggie ice creams, puppuccinos and handmade dog treats. Sassasfras serves all-day breakfast, coffees and cakes to indulge without guilt. The restaurant is also big on sustainability.
