“Worst Sevice.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

We visited today for Brekkie after a lovely weekend in Halls Gap. There was 6 of us and we arrived at 10am we queued up for 20mins to just order. We placed our order at 10.20 at 11.15 we were still waiting no one came over and apologised for the wait then the best bit happened. 4 of the people with us got there meals we still waited the 2 people that ordered 20mins after us got their meals so my hubby went up to ask if our meals were coming to which we got yes soon. Still waited our 4 friends had all fininshed we still had no meals so we watched other tables get theirs again. By this time people from outside were complaining that had been waiting for 40mins we now had been waiting 1 hr. Went up to the counter and was told we have been busy we have had 30 customers no apologie so wa asked for our money back got some bad attitiude from the service staff so asked for the owner. He was such a rude horrible man who coulf not of cared less about our complaint just said of get them out and give them back there money. I have never had service this bad ever not even we are sorry or guys we are busy there will be a delay that we would of understood. And our friends meals were not even that great when they did get theres. Go if u have allday to spare and dont mind rude service staff.

“Great food and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here as I had missed lunch, and could not wait for other places to open for dinner, the cafe offered a wide range of food, the steak and pepper pie was great, great value and the staff very friendly

“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Stopped for afternoon tea with friends. Waited At least 20 minutes for our coffees to arrive and at least another 10 minutes for a plate of scones to arrive (which staff seemed to have forgotten about and we had to remind them). When the finally scones arrived, the choc-mint slice that was ordered was missing. After notifying the staff twice of the missing slice, they denied it was ordered. After arguing that it had in fact been ordered and paid for, it finally arrived, with a bonus slice for all the trouble.

“Best Eggs Benedict ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Eggs Benedict was just the best! I always eat this dish when it is available and have had some truly terrible ones over the last 7 years. But this was the best so far. Eggs just cooked right, traditional ham and muffin, and the hollandaise was just amazing! Topped off with a heart starter coffee and my day couldn't have had a better beginning. Staff friendly and were able to help with some questions about the surrounding area that set me off on my travels for the day. Can't wait to go back, for the countryside and the Eggs Benedict!
