definitely worth a stopover. excellent choices.

An excellent place for a coffee and cake or a lunch. Busy place with WiFi available. We stopped for morning tea with a relation that lives in the town. Clean rest rooms out the back of the cafe. An excellent blackboard menu as well as sandwiches and cakes from the cabinets.

Ordered take away wedges. Only got 200g for $11 :( Larger take away boxes would be ideal Recommend eat in rather than on the fly

Always great food in here especially off the blackboard menu but I'm constantly grated by the rude girl who serves and makes coffee - she never smiles and if u ask her to butter anything or for something a bit different she acts like you've asked her to donate a vital organ without anaesthetic. Get rid of her and the... More

Coffee was pretty good, but the lady that served us yelled a question to the kitchen staff quite loudly making me feel quite embarrassed, the whole place could hear what I was asking.

Not being a 'morning person', and always running late, breakfast at home is usually missed - thank god for the muffins at Table Talk Cafe. As its on my morning mail run, I usually nip in and get a muffin on the way back. At the moment I am into their savoury muffins - although their blueberry muffins are equally... More

Quite a busy cafe in Gore with plenty of seating (indoor and outdoor) and a large variety yummy food. Coffee is constantly great and the staff are always warm and inviting. I had the Salmon Eggs Benedict and it was yummy. Great place to stop by in Gore.
