Had lunch here and everything about it was great. Focaccias, pancakes and thick shakes were all delicious, prices reasonable, and the service was prompt. Thoroughly recommended, and absolutely the best place for a meal in Clunes.

The name gets me in every time. The food is good and so is the coffee. A large old fashioned lolly shop is next door. Call in next time you pass through Clunes.

Wonderfully quirky little café. Indoor/Outdoor seating. Excellent lunches for our foursome - lasagne with terrific salad x two and vegetarian focaccia x two, all very tasty. Good service, friendly staff, always with a big smile.

This is quirky little café in the centre of historic Clunes has hot pink walls which give it its odd sense of charm. Our pies, shepherds and cauliflower with cheese, weren't anything special but the accompanying relishes were delicious, especially the beetroot one! Friendly staff...More

Please note that for the first Clunes, Victoria restaurant listing that I recently requested (O'Hara's@Clunes), TA staff incorrectly located it in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) when in fact both O'Hara's and the cafe above are in then historic first Victorian town where gold was discovered in about 1854. Many thanks for your ongoing commitment to accuracy.
