I had the best coffee I've ever had at this little cafe. I went in search of the coffee (Nuovo I think is the brand) and its roasted in Bendigo. I got myself some but the coffee I made from it at home was nowhere near as good as the coffee made from it at Jen's Place. It was the... More

The service here is a little too relaxed and the atmosphere is non existent. There is a much better place just up the road. I have been in for coffee and a bowl of chips, the coffee was very average, the bowl of chips was a bowl of chips. The lack of attention to detail had me questioning what was... More

Ordered a chicken schnitzel burger, was perfectly cooked and the roll was soft and fresh. Anything I order from here is delicious. Great service, will always be my go to cafe in Castlemaine.

Ordered a schnitzel burger and waited 10 minutes for an old soft wholegrain roll with a really burnt schnitzel - it was literally black. So disappointing. Won't go back there or recommend it to anyone.

My dad and I often go there for a milkshake and Jen is so lovely to everyone! The staffing is brilliant and so is the food. Jen helped me out with my art project and pitting it on her wall and the sausage rolls are amazing! Go here! when it is not too busy :)
