“Wonderful Scones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We visit here regularly as we have a caravan/boat just along the road at Barcaldine. We love the scones and would agree that they have to be amongst the best around. Treacle, fruit, cheese all fab. Jimmy always makes us feel welcome as do the waitresses. Five out of five for the food and five out of five for customer service.

“Don't pass this cafe without visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This is by far the friendliest best cafe I have ever visited. The food is freshly made and the service is fantastic. It is child friendly and has a great outdoor seating area for warm days.

“Nice stop off place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were greeted as we walked into the Ben Lora café by a very cheerful waitress who said to sit anywhere. The menu though small gave a good few options. Both myself and my companion were impressed by the scones on display and we decided to order these, one fruit and one plain, you're given the option to have it with butter and jam or cream and jam which is a nice touch, we both chose the butter options.
The scones when they came smelled scrumptious and taster even better!! They were slightly warm as if they'd just come out of the oven and we both agreed that these were the best scones that we'd tasted all week (after having a few while on holiday).
All in all we would have no hesitation in stopping back here for elevenses again.
Staff were cheerful and looked like they were enjoying their job.

“How did I miss this?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We have passed this cafe many times and I had concluded that it was probably a bookshop with a small cafe included. But not so...an excellent cafe, clean and smart and with a super menu. Great service and a friendly welcoming staff. Do not miss this - do not pass by.
