Family of 2adults and 4kids. We stop here on the way to and from Mt Hotham. Food is great, service is friendly, great cafe restaurant. Next to a park so kids can have a run around and break up the car trip. A definite stop for us.

Great location in the heart of the river area. Staff are friendly and full of local knowledge. Fires are great to keep warm on the frosty mornings.

Food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and the coffees were also excellent . We have great view of the mountains. It would be excellent in the summer, but it is lovely and warm during the winter.

Warm welcome in temperature and staff. Great food plates for sharing which suited all the ages and tastes. Everyone chose a dish and then we shared. Outstanding dish was the gnocchi with gorgonzola and walnut sauce. Even the young one enjoyed this.

Nice atmosphere, lovely view over the park & friendly service. We ate the hot cakes and the hash dish which were delicious. We were served in a timely manner as the cafe was not busy. Would recommend Ginger Baker.

The place looked great and had a nice feel but it took 45 mins for our food to arrive and when it did it was cold and dry. Friendly enough staff but the guys in the kitchen need to pull their finger out.
