​Canvas & Cream opened in 2012 and from our very beginning, we have been a community venture. With no electricity, walls or plumbing, we were in need of a little TLC.​ Local people have always been at the heart of Canvas & Cream, originally helping to furnish and equip the restaurant and creating the origins of the lovely community venue you can enjoy today. 

The Canvas & Cream philosophy is to be inclusive and encourage creativity and expression, through art, food and living well. 

Join us for cocktail happy hour from 3pm.
