This cafe has delicious food and excellent coffee. The menu has a broad range on offer with plenty to choose from. The service is prompt and friendly. Meals are of a good generous size. Prices are good for food and quality of meals.

Great place for lunch on the main road in Ballarat. Food was hot and tasty and coffee was good. Cold day so we sat inside by the fire but there is outside seating.
