The food is simple cafe fair. Honest, cheap and tasty. Lovely owners, very quick to serve and came out to ask us how everything was. Brilliant service, as it should be.

The cafe has a decent selection of pies, a pasta dish, soup, standard cafe food like chicken nuggets and toasted sandwiches, and an all- day breakfast menu. Friendly service.

Stepping from the cool weather after touring the grounds, the warmth and smells of the cafe were welcoming. Good variety of snacks for pre-coal mine tour and then more substantial options for post our explorations.

Restaurant food was great valve and excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Mine tour was well worth the entry fee and highly recommended. The tour guide was awesome and had the kids captivated. If your around Wonthaggi don’t miss it!

So worth visiting. Steve showed us through the mine and he was just great. Funny, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. Makes one think how tough these blokes had it and how lucky we all are. Definitely worth the visit.

Had a bar meal, got the porterhouse steak, stake was chargrilled and cooked perfect. There are lots of stuff to look at on the wall including a crocodile, worth a look. Hope this helps
