Customer reviews

  • Such a beautiful, inviting building. I love the chilled, and quirky atmosphere, and the diversity of people that come in, so you feel totally at ease with everyone. The food is amazing and quite affordable, and there's always some seriously great events on too. The Cave is a totally cool place to be in for the gigs. Favourite place to enjoy with friends.

  • Had my first experience at the butter factory today. The most amazing food, most friendly staff, fantastic service. And to top it off had the cutest smiles from the youngest member of the staff Ariel. Fully recommend this place!!! Thank you Jess for making my first butter factory experience the best one.
