We had a catered dinner here with fellow travelers. The place is very casual and not fancy. The service was slow, but the food was really interesting and very tasty. We'd been looking forward to local food during the first part of our trip and finally found it here. It is definitely worth a stop.

Their name may say they can cook but my experience was not enjoyable Only had a toasted sandwich and coffee Price was more then expected sandwich was less then hoped for and the coffee needed more sugar then I am allowed. Very disappointing

Great coffee and the wattleseed brownie is to die for! The lemon myrtle scones looked good too. Add to your list of must do's in Alice.

Lovely sunny garden courtyard or inside. Friendly staff indigenous owned. Mouthwatering food, good coffee etc. Nice haven to chill out. Spotlessly clean.

Wanted to order from menu supplied but had to order from food that was already prepared! Food that I was able to choose was tasty.

I attended a function last week there and the food was flavorsome, varied and delicious. Went back today for lunch and the rice paper rolls were just as good. My friend had the kangaroo pie that was also delicious. Good selection of bush tucker. The vibe was really friendly and relaxed.

I ordered the quiche and a coffee. It was all excellent and the quiche came with a home made pesto and tomato sauce which was excellent. Highly recommend giving these guys a go

Travelling through the NT I was DESPERATE to learn about 'bush tucka' and the flavours of the Australian outback. We visited this gem and it did not fail to impress!! We bought duckas, chutneys, jams and trail mix, full of delicious native flavours such as bush tomato, saltbush and lemon myrtle. The staff were incredible and gave us so so... More
