On the recommendation of our Motel host we had a most enjoyable lunch, sitting on the verandah overlooking the back garden. There is a good range of sandwiches, pies, pastries and light meals and it is also licensed. Good spot.

Right next door to the bike hire and dropped in with no expectations- OMG the food is amazing. We had an omelette and poached eggs on potato rosti. Coffee was perfect and so were our breakfasts. Fantastic find!

Dropped in for a coffee and could not resist the Sticky Buns. Coffee was fantastic as was the sticky bun. Good place to stop at if walking back from the Old Gaol.
