This lady runs an amazingly clean cafe on her own. The food and coffee was good. The restrooms and restaurant area are incredibly clean. It was cold when we arrived for breakfast but when she lit the fire it soon warmed up.

We stopped here for lunch and had very tasty pies for lunch. There is a good selection of food on offer and the place was busy over the lunch hour. Service was a bit hectic when it was busy, but super friendly and helpful
