Called in here for a coffee and took away a yummy egg and bacon sandwich. Entertained while waiting by the funniest order dude ever. The food and coffee were great, the service was the best ever. Well and truly worth a stopover on the long road.

Worst pies and sausage rolls ever the pastry was raw on all occasions that I have purchased any pies or sausage rolls from there. I have even had their cake which was unimpressive to say the least. I did have there breakfast once as top of town was closed and I have never gone back for breakfast either c

Best coffee we have had since we left home and certainly the best service station coffee and sausage roll I have ever had. All served by a seriously chipper young bloke.

Tried to get something for breakfast, there was nothing suitable available. Left-overs from the day before, some very dodgy looking roll things with unidentifiable toppings and had to wait ages for our coffee. Service was poor, selection of food was terrible.
