Stopped at this Cafe on the Queens Birthday long weekend. There was a lot of options in the glass cabinet out the front but was told only one item was gluten-free Brownie. None of the sandwiches where so all I had for lunch was a...More

Finding a decent coffee in a little town is sometimes hard. Not here! Nice people, quick service and range of sweet and savoury things to take away. Thank you.

We discovered this place on our way home from the Port Fairy Folk Festival when not much was open. Home made cakes, wraps and light lunches. Very friendly service. Great coffee too.

Had lunch and the food was great. Danni, the girl who served us was extremely friendly and told us a lot about her little town.

Nice food, but hard to buy something without butter/marg or sweet sauce. Had great toasties and all arrived in a reasonable time. I would advise asking for hot drinks ahead if important to you. Nice toilet, but no hand wash for a couple of days.

Well presented cafe with lovely rustic country atmosphere and pleasant ambience. The food was nice, although my poached eggs were inconsistent (one semi firm, one super runny and underdone) and the meals were brought out at fairly random intervals, with large gaps in between. There...More
