Had a lovely breakfast here with a friend before we headed over to the Frock Swap. I had the corn fritters which came towered with a lovely dressing. Delicious. My friend had the smashed avo on toast which was of such a generous portion that she couldn't finish it. She loved it though. Coupled with good coffee this was a lovely place to visit. There is outside seating, however we sat inside this time.

Thanks for the review Chookybird. Did you know you picked our two most popular dishes from our menu? Hopefully we see you when you visit Willy again for the next Frock Swap.

Was trying out my new camera and taking photos of the sunrise in Willy and dropped in for breakfast. Friendly staff, great food and coffee. Poached eggs and salmon with a long mac. Good coffee and worth going a little further along Nelson Place for. Took a few photos. Very friendly staff particularly that early in the morning.

The biggest drawback with GFC is lack of room but a bigger space would probably result in a loss of the atmosphere which is GFC! Great food great service great place that is why I am a regular

This has quickly become my local hangout! Enjoying their seasonal menu, healthy and unhealthy options, and the coffee is of a high standard. The cafe looks like it should. Their fit out is perfect for the area, more venues should follow suit. Love love love.
