We had coffee and cake here on our way to the Anau and lunch on the way back. It has a nice indoor restaurant and pleasant outdoor deck at the back. Service can be a little slow but very nice cafe style food.

Thank You for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed our food, service and utilities. Our honey cake recipe is from Europe, might be why it was different from Perth. We hope you come again in the future. Enjoy your travels.

Thank you for your review. Firstly when you came back ''the next day'' you talked to completely different staff that had no idea about your special request the day before. I apologize about the sauce in your burger, it shouldn't have been in there.
