We had a very nice lunch while driving along the great ocean road. Perfect with kids because they can play at the playground on the side.

Good range of foodstuffs and the baked bread is great! Muffins were also really yummy! Not cheap but it's in an isolated spot so you expect that! Great for ice and fishing bait too!

Lovely location and great chocolate croissant. Enjoyed the store very much. Coffee not quite strong enough for my liking even though a double shot. Still nice place

Headed across to grab a coffee after a morning beach walk on the weekend. The cafe was full and there was a long line for takeaway coffee orders. There was only one barista who was under the pump.

Just a great spot to grab a coffee and read the papers while supervising the kidlets in the playground from a deck chair.

A classic general store, plus a range of gourmet products. Not too expensive and good service. Cafe next door for meals and snacks.

The best coffee on the Great Ocean Road, what more can I say? The Service was a little stand offish, the kids playground was bonus and the beach was a lovely spot. Please fix your toilets. Only one operating?
