We enjoyed a great breakfast as well as learning about the opal mine and other available gems. The cafe employees were wonderful and we always love a place with unique character. We purchased a beautiful necklace from the shop. We'll definitely stop by again!

Great food, lots to choose from and large portions, enough to share. Off the beaten path. Friendly staff! Well worth the stop. Open 365 days.
