This place has two facades. On one side is the coffee shop on the other is the "old style' lolly shop. We didnt dine in but purchased some sweets. Prices as expected were high but brings back memories of my childhood.

Please note that for the first Clunes, Victoria restaurant listing that I recently requested (O'Hara's@Clunes), TA staff incorrectly located it in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) when in fact both O'Hara's and the cafe above are in then historic first Victorian town where gold was discovered in about 1854. Many thanks for your ongoing commitment to accuracy.
