“A gem of a stop off”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We'd been driving for 2 hours and decided to stop in Robertson to grab some lunch. We happened upon Grand Cafe, which looked lovely, although empty and thought 'this'll do'. I'm so glad we chose this place. We had 2 open sandwiches, which were delicious, very tasty and really well presented.

If we'd have been staying closer we would have come back for an evening meal. Staff were really welcoming and helpful. Highly recommend!

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

The small coffee shop is fantastic. It took me a while to warm up to it, but now I really enjoy it. The food is fresh and Wendy can cook. By the looks of things and the requests she can bake pretty well to! A good place to stop for really good food.

“Route 62 excellent stopover”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We heard that the Grand Cafe in Robertson served clotted cream!!! It is well situated on the R62, and we had to stop for scones and cream. They were out of cream, so Wendy called her supplier, and was told that a shop in the town had supplies. We went to the shop, but they didn't have any scones. So we bought cream and returned to Grand Cafe to have the perfect cream tea!!! Not to be missed! Wendy and her staff went out of their way to help us. They have a fabulous set up on this scenic touring route, not to be missed.
