Food is OK, but nothing brilliant. Nice place if you have been living on canned foods for a while before arriving. Worse is the berating of staff (family?) in front of customers.

We decided to stop here as it had the awards...three kinds of pizza and a burger. It was fine but not award winning. Our local deli has similar quality and freshness, and flavour. The place was VERY clean, and we were impressed with that, more than anything.

The pizza base was really great, though.

The food was really nice, but no better than a lot of other places I've been. There's not a lot of other places in Coober, however. Next time we'll try the Chinese restaurant to compare. I'm guessing your standard 'meat and two veg' type of eater would think it outstanding.

An excellent choice for a reasonably price and tasty meal. They have some unique options for toppings that I had not ever considered before eating here.

This place is truly amazing. It is one of the best eateries in town which it means it is constantly busy. Despite that you will still get great service. The menu has about 100 items on it including breakfast, lunch and dinner style options, pizza, pasta, cafe and bistro style meals, and some options that I've never seen anywhere else. They also do takeaway and have a great selection of SA wines. There is simply something for eveyone here and the food is FANTASTIC. We ate here 3 times during our stay in Coober Pedy, had completely diiferent style meals every time but each time got great food and friendly efficient service. After the evening meals once the owner and once the manager ran us back to our motel. A must visit.
