My wife and I stop here on the way back from Port Arthur. We enjoyed the shop. Had a hot chocolate and the most delicious mud cake! Well worth a stop to experience the cake and warm up!

The food was just what 4 hungry travellers needed after a morning walk to Waterfall bay. It was fresh and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back.
