A great place for excellent coffee & food. Attentive & friendly staff with great service and warm smiles on every visit we made to this interesting 'Retro' Café during our week stay in Pt.Elliot. Highly recommended. Did I mention their GREAT Coffee - best we had during our interstate holiday. Keep up the good work. We will be back. Leon & Marg C

Settle back in one of the comfortable old lounge chairs or group around a formica table to enjoy the good coffee, but choose a latte as the flat white is a little on the small side. The cafe is often very busy, but the service is good and the wait never long. With a north facing outdoor area sheltered from the westerly winds, this makes a great place to soak up the winter sunshine while enjoying the outlook over a small park and the surrounding old buildings. Port Elliot is a great place to enjoy a girls' day out with its many and varied clothing shops, the huge ADRA op shop in a back street, several cafes and an impressive local butcher.

Popped into the Cafe for a quick bite to eat before school pick up time, had refreshing tasty Foccacia with Roasted Chicken and Avacardo with Sundried Tomatoes which was tasty with cupps of tea served in Funky interesting china which added to our conversation. Lovely Cheesecake for dessert. The view from the side of the cafe was exceptional and it was shelted from the wind and sunny, I t was peaceful and relaxing with loads of interesting things to look at or purchase inside. The Owner was warm and friendly with heaps of good information about the architecture of the area. A really lovely afternoon loved it and will make it a local hangout.

First visit with my coffee group; had to take my husband (and still going regularly); took my 85 year old friend to lunch and she loved it too. Wonderful atmosphere with that lovely singalong music,either on the jukebox or take along your favourite vinyls and Michael will play them for you, as you admire all the memorabilia, and the old buildings in the area - and on Sunday, Wednesday or school holidays you might even see the steam train chuff past just down the road. And - you don't get kicked out at 4pm as you seem to everywhere else around here! Thanks, Michael. Judy P.
