Mon-Fri we open at 10:30am Sat-Sun 9:30am it clearly states this on the door. You'd be the first to complain if you came in to a dirty café.

After a walk around the shore Lake Brunner or maybe a bit of water skiing, you can pop into the Station House Cafe for something to eat and drink. Food was delicious and so was the coffee. Staff were friendly and welcoming.
