Stop in Clarence Hotel. Salt and Pepper squid and chilli prawns beautiful. Salad dressings light and tasty. For those with a sweet tongue plenty to choose from. Best kept secret. Backs onto garden setting on the river. Do yourself a favour and call in

Opening Hours Breakfast and Lunch 8.30am - 2.30 pm (7days) Dinner 6.00pm - 8.30pm Tues- Sat Outstanding Coffee This is a delightful cafe/restaurant that provides excellent low priced meals in a setting on the banks of the Clarence River. It is right beside the Pacific Highway and is an excellent break point for those driving the Sydney-Brisbane highway. We have eaten there twice in the past week and were most impressed. We think it should be better known, especially as the service is especially friendly.
