  • Love this place. Such a beautiful tranquil place. The temple to me is a place not of this world so magical. The people are friendly and the teachings are spot on really help with the every day 9-5pm life! Meditation really does work cheers .
  • Coffee is fantastic and you can get soy, coconut and almond milk here to. Dairy and gluten free delicious cakes and sandwiches. Peaceful and friendly. The toilets are in need of a better clean but maybe that's because its such a busy place.
