We stopped in here for breakfast. The food was pretty average roadside cafe fare, except for the poached eggs, which were done in a poacher, not in water, and were pretty much hard boiled. The dining area doesn't have a lot of ambiance, but there's some nice artwork on the walls. The service was a little lackluster too. The big... More

Called in for a quick meal to take home.. Well.. got there waiting at the counter for a good 5 minutes, they weren't busy.. Lady who served me was rude and abrupt. 15-20 minutes later, I got my sweet and sour pork.. DISGUSTING. I had one, maybe two bites, the pork was chewy,the sauce had this horrid taste, and the...

Do go here,over priced; burnt food, not good. Should of checked TripAdvisor first, my own fault. It's not Chinese food, it's not breakfast food. Maybe I should of ordered boiled water, in saying that they probably would of burnt that too.

We went here for Chinese food and they had no idea what they were doing. Simple chinese meals were way to hard for them. Asked for chicken curry (no vegetables) just chicken and sauce. Said they couldn't do it. Food was very average and the staff can't communicate with each other. Avoid like the plaque - you will regret it... More

Warm, casual and friendly place to eat in and talk! Good to know all the workers are local and the business is locally owned - great experience!

A lovely restaurant for family and friends. It's nice and cosy by the fire. Great value for money, especially the big breakfast! So many things from the menu to choose from. Thanks Stutz we will be back.

I'm not sure why we actually choose this place to eat, I guess it was cold and wet outside & we were hungry. Customer Service & their burgers (none of which come with a meat patty... Odd I thought given the price that we were being charged for them). are a real let down to a place that has potential.... More

It costs $20 for a breakfast with 2 eggs, a sausage, 2 pieces of round bacon, two hash brown, a toast, a little beans in tomato sauce and mushroom. Coffee has no refill. $16 for an egg Benedict with a piece of bacon and a slice of toast. Service is bare minimal. This is like a buy and eat-in Cafe.... More

Great coffee, tasty cabinet food, warm and inviting what more could you want on a cold winters day. Comfortable seating pleasing decor, I especially loved the brick fire featured in the middle of the room. Service was fast but no smiles to be had. Friendly atmosphere and I will be coming back.

We stayed down the road and went here for chinese takeaways the first night. They simply didn't acknowledge us for a good while, then when we eventually got our food it was terrible.
