Casual Home style cafe serving breakfast and lunch. Our Omelets are huge but you can always order a Mini one (2 eggs) Weekends we always feature a Benny Special and an Omelet special. Freshly baked cinnamon buns daily, as well we bake most of our own breads, buns, pastries, pies etc. Soups made from scratch using fresh local ingredients when possible. We like to say you can pronounce everything in our food. We feature a couple of breakfast specials usually and Benny and an Omelette, a Soup & Sandwich special and a daily special every day. Daily specials include, pastas, Fish & Chips, Burger Specials, Roast Beef Dip, Reuben Sandwiches, and more... Our Nickel and Chicken burgers are made in house

Had breakfast here and was pleasantly surprised. Great home cooking and the best cinnamon buns ever. It is a nice little cafe.....kind of takes you back in time. Staff were very friendly. Will come back again for sure.

Went here for the first time and it was pretty good. The food was good but they don't serve real panfried potatoes for breakfast. The coffee is terrible.

had the soup and sandwich for lunch and was pleasantly surprised, the soup was hardy and tasty and the sandwich was nice and thick with plenty of roast beef, by the looks of the crud it would appear to be a local favourite

The Jammery is apparently the touristy place to go, but when it's closed due to a water supply issue, it allowed us to find this local gem as an alternative breakfast location. Pricing is reasonable and serving size is good, especially if you're ordering the...More

Wasn’t sure what this cafe would be like as we had 2 unsuccessful attempts at finding a local bar/grill (and we saw this was open from across the road). However I was pleasantly surprised as the cafe had good service, daily specials were offered, the...More
