“back in time quaint”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Walked in the door and it was relaxed atmosphere and staff were very welcoming, could've easily sat there all day watching and talking to all the interesting people including Linda Topp and wife Donna who sat at chatted and were super lovely :)

“Fabulous atmosphere, coffee and food”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

It's well worth stopping in this little one shop town for a coffee break and the best brioche around (baked only in the weekends) The old 1800 store feel has been maintained, service was excellent as was the food and coffee

“A must stop off on the Scenic Highway”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Love the Staveley Store - great coffee, warm welcome and good food. Recommend the bacon buttie and salmon quiche! Good place to stop off on the way through on the Scenic Highway or a destination in itself.

“A wonderful find in a scenic locality”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

I'd been away with friends on a photography weekend, and we just happened to call into the Staveley Store for lunch; just one of us knew that it was there. The store is quaint and intriguing, with seating inside and out, a wonderful selection of cafe style food and coffees, and other day-to-day goods to buy as well. The staff were obviously happy in their jobs, had smiles on their faces and were very willing to supply exactly what we wanted for lunch. Would we return? Most certainly!
