School holidays and popped in for feeding hungry boys. Wolfed down lasagne, pork dumplings, chips and milkshakes. Commented “great cafe Dad, can we come back?”. Feel like family as other locals here. So attentive, friendly and hospitable. Find this gem. Grabbed one of their lovely fridge curries on way out to meet the dinner need later on.

Groove is a wonderful little community eatery that has transformed into an amazingly diverse casual coffee cafe and food production business. There is limited indoor seating, however outdoor tables are popular in the summer months.

It offers a wide range of fresh foods made on the premises. This includes great sausage rolls, sandwiches, salad rolls, salads and much more. They also sell delicious prepared gluten-free curries to take home and reheat. Very popular with locals.

Groove has an eclectic clientele ranging from locals dropping in to read the papers while they have a coffee, tourists, tradies who drop by for lunch or morning tea, or those looking for something more substantial to take home for the evening meal.

And the owners and staff are super friendly. I love the food, service and vibe of Groove. It is unique.

Great pies, sandwiches and slices. We always get a chicken salad roll which is delicious. The owner is very friendly and always warm. A good place to stop and get a coffee and the papers if nothing else.

Am embarrassed to say after living locally for 18 years, this was my first visit. Met a friend for lunch and what a pleasant surprise. Great extensive menu and excellent coffee. Sausage Roll was delicious though could have been hotter. Friends Chicken Burger looked great and will have that next time I visit. The place was packed in the middle of winter (good sign) with Tradies coming in continuously - they know their food. Offered to share a table with lady who was delightful company and hope to meet her again. Staff very helpful I sure will be back.

Lovely staff, little playground outside for kids. Chicken burgers are no exaggeration - the best thing ever. Stopped once for convenience then changed our route home to make sure we could go back again 4 days later.
