There is not much open in Cooma on a Sunday night in October. But this cafe was. I visited back in March and I didn't really want to come again, but my friends were keen.

A group of us stopped here for breakfast after an early start from Canberra. This place is definitely the small town 'coffee lounge' style of the 70s and 80s with big serves but not very healthy.

This used to be the hub of Cooma, always full with great meals. Busy Sunday afternoon and a sign on the door said take away only, closing at 3 pm. Are you kidding!

When visiting Cooma have breakfast at the Tourist Cafe, delicious Bacon and Eggs, with grilled tomato and toast. They make your coffee exactly the way you like it. Friendly staff are only too happy to accommodate your wishes, also try their Cinnamon Toast.
