We've been here a number of times on journeys interstate or going to the Grampian. Perfectly fine meals (pies, vanilla slices and coffees) all at a reasonable price. Right in the heart of town. Interesting artworks on the walls from local artists for sale inside.

Just stopped in for a couple of awarding winning pies to take on the journey to Melbourne. Bought a bacon cheese and steak that was as bland as cardboard with no sign of any bacon or cheese, and a ricotta and spinach one. First bite into this revealed a dried out excuse for food that was also as bland as... More

Stopped here for lunch because no other cafes were open in the town after midday on a Saturday. Ordering was an ordeal in itself.

The people here are lovely! Pies are quite good (not the best I've had but far from the worst) and a lovely little place to sit, with local art displayed on the walls. Well worth a stop in.

We just got a bacon egg roll to take up to the lookout. The rolls were pretty tasty and decently priced. Apparently they sell a whole tray of vanilla slices each day because they're really tasty.

Went here for lunch the other day. Although they got my order wrong what i did get was yummy. The staff are friendly and meals came out fast. Lots of things on offer, from usual bakery fare to sandwiches and foccacia's and lots of other yummy food. Relaxing place to sit and eat breakfast or lunch, and reasonably priced.

Easy parking after seeing an appealing frontage was rewarded despite it being for a late lunch on a Saturday. Fresh sandwiches were quickly provided with great service. All the food on offer looked very good.
