I stopped in here to find information about local towns and attractions. The lady was super knowledgeable and friendly to talk to, she gave us much needed advice. The cafe was very reasonably priced and the free wifi very useful.

Friendly staff, great experience, relaxed atmosphere. The Cafe has a good choice, gift shop has a good range (even Mount Isa monopoly). The staff are knowledgeable, and are enthusiastic about their jobs.
