We were passing through and weren’t quite sure which place to choose, there was a lot more choice than we expected. Great coffee, food and very friendly staff. Service was good. The atmosphere was nice especially with the fire going. We’re planning to stop there...More

Passing through a small rural town, it is hard to know where to stop. But Cafe 26 on Ross is absolutely the best place for breakfast, lunch and coffee in Lawrence. The custard square was the best I have ever had. Coffee is spot on....More

A wee while since we've been up to central via Lawrence - this cafe/restaurant is well worth a visit.

Undoubtedly my coffee stop on my weekly journey through Lawrence. One has to try their Muffins. then just look into the food cabinet. The choice is very hard to make. It all looks very appetizing
