Nothing special at all.

Just an old fashioned, traditional style, cafe that offers nothing really special at all. A simple basic feed is about the best I can say about it. Prices are reasonable, service is ok, but there is certainaly nothing imaginative or contemporary about the food selection, or decor. Cooma has lots of... read more

Called in here to get a takeaway lunch for two adults and one child. Made the mistake of trusting them and not looking in the bag. Ordered 6 salt and pepper calamari, a pumpkin soup with garlic bread and for the little Bloke a hamburger with no salad. I got 5 small pieces of sacrificed battered supposedly calamari that tasted...

It doesn't look much from the outside but it ticks all the boxes. Quick service, the best hot chocolate, a breakfast worth returning for. Friendly staff.

Wow.. from the outside just a plain looking country café but inside it was clean and spacious. The service was high quality and the food was even better. There was a wide choice on the menu with all day breakfast as well. I had the big breakfast which was a little dearer but so much to eat. The coffee was... More

We bundled in for a late afternoon tea. The service was fine. I ordered english breakfast tea and the home made date biscuits. The biscuits were yummy. Hence the three bullets.

The food is good and the coffee is great - real coffee. It is easy to find in the main street near the roundabout which also has the park on one of the corners. We know of many locals who routinely have lunch here. The quality is consistently good and the price is good.
