Hot Coffee and 3 Degrees.... Outside

Décor with a difference. Wish I had my sunnies. Hot Pink Walls on a Sunday morning was a little testing , however the outside temperature was forgotten after the warm welcome we received, coupled with the superb coffee and equally as good warm Muffin. We will be back.

The coffee and lunch was very good but we made the mistake of ordering immediately on entering, rather than sitting down and reading the menu (which had the prices on it). Therefore we were somewhat shocked when our lunch and coffees cost us over $40. We found it to be a very cosy venue and an enjoyable lunch stop.

This place has two facades. On one side is the coffee shop on the other is the "old style' lolly shop. We didnt dine in but purchased some sweets. Prices as expected were high but brings back memories of my childhood.

This is the second time we have visited from Melbourne. The cafe even though in the main street is quiet enough to be able to sit out the front and enjoy your treat. There are many to pick from and today we has a large latte and an iced chocolate. Both were very delicious. We shared a warm homemade date... More

It is a lovely mixture of lolly shop, coffee/tea stop, simple well done food and a place to smile. It sits in a perfect spot between an interesting photographer and a very appealing wine bar on the main street. Of course, you could try to avoid buying some of those very naughty lollies but naughtiness is us and we pretended... More

We were in Clunes visiting the historical sites and decided on a coffee. The staff were friendly, the coffee was hot and the banana bread was toasted well. My partner had a coffee and a pastie and said he would have liked his pastie a bit hotter. But happily ate it. There is a sweet shop next door which stocks... More
