Family size supreme pizza with garlic bread and 1.25L drink for $25.50. Nice pizza with crisp base and not too salty. Garlic bread satisfactory. 300m from the local Motel. Lots of other choices on the menu. Dine in or take-away. Recommended.

Great place for a quite coffee. Evening meals are served quickly. Children's menu has good variety, nothing is too much trouble. Very friendly and accommodating staff.
