Average coffee, don't go out of your way to find it like we did after a recommendation. Long waits, cash only.

The ladies in this tiny four-meter-long caravan turn out awesome coffee and delicious breakfast bowls and toasties. It's set in an intriguing arts complex, and well worth looking for. We went on a whim one morning, and returned the next day.

Friendly, funky, excellent coffee — what a coffee cafe should be! The staff were always friendly and the lattes very delicious. Salmon bowl with egg / toast and the Silver Brumby toasty were delicious. Love this place!

The tasty delights that are on offer at this oasis caravan cart are simply delicious, shout out to the toasted sandwiches and the watermelon gazpacho (outrageous idea but totally scrumptious). She even catered to my vegan friend's culinary requirements. I love my coffee and I...More
