Best lunch of the trip - twice

We were brought here by local friends for lunch and couldn't believe how tasty and fresh the food was. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere and quirky shop make it well worth finding.

Best breakfast - must try the indo! Great play area for the kids, very family friendly... You could call it a hidden treasure.

We went here for breakfast with two dogs in tow - it was mid-week and the cafe was quiet. The food was delicious and came out very quickly. The cafe is in a lovely bush setting and the dogs enjoyed a good sniff around after we finished eating.

Yesterday we had eggs benedict with fresh ham, spinach and hollandaise sauce. Very generous serving with delicious leg ham, homemade hollandaise sauce, sautéed spinach and perfectly cooked eggs. Well done Goanna!

This is an amazing little gem of the South West. The food is fantastic and the service is always friendly. The breakfast menu is so interesting and it's hard to choose what to have. I can highly recommend the Indo and the Spanish. Although I do know from family and friends that everything else is just as good. I love... More

We dined for lunch with a large group (21) and were well catered for. Food was great with good presentation and service. BYO and small corkage charge makes it good value. If you want that experience of eating while sitting amongst the native bush ask for a table behind the restaurant. Also dog friendly :-)

Just like the animal this establishment takes it's name from the Goanna Cafe and Gallery is well camouflaged in its beautiful bush setting. We stopped in for lunch having previously visited for breakfast. The menu offers a small range of various meals and an all day breakfast menu. The service was great, fast and all meals were very yummy.
