Quality. Fresh. Local

We are committed to sourcing quality ingredients, and carefully crafting our menus with the freshest local produce, seafood and meat in mind, and we are committed to the preservation of the ocean and its fisheries. The Trellis Café is proud to use ingredients that are fresh, high in quality, and sustainable whenever and wherever possible.

Taste Happiness

We have a passion for food and we like to make people happy. We love butter, we love salt and we are in a love-hate relationship with sugar. We also believe in large portions. Ultimately, our aim is to provide our diners with deliciously prepared meals in a comfortable setting; relaxed, upscale comfort food, using the freshest ingredients, sourced from our network of local vendors.

Family owned and operated

Established in 1985, the history of The Trellis Café spans over four decades. A family-owned and operated business, the Trellis Café is run by restaurateurs Stephen and Jane Parsons. You can expect to meet members of the Parsons family in our dining room or working in the kitchen, on most days.
