Burger bun was dry and the meat was not cooked properly. It was overpriced for what was served up. Service was also very slow!!

Like the title says they have good coffee ☕️! Along with the bacon 🥓 and egg 🍳 muffin. Perfect! An unexpected surprise on a morning bike 🚴 ride.

Stopped in as we couldn't see much elae around and we were very hungry. Loved the place. The food was delicious and the service was welcoming and friendly. If we are ever back in Williamstown will be stopping in again.

We popped in here to grab some take aways with the grandchildren. The food was yummy, service although a little full on (I think it was new owners) was great. Seems like it's a family running it.
