We went there for a private function. The hosts were terrific and very accommodating. The food was fantastic. Beef and chicken cooked (very well) over charcoal. This was accompanied by various salads, including one of the nicest Greek Salads I've ever had. Based on the...food offered, I'll be back to try their breakfast and lunches.More

Perfect for what we were after- poached eggs on toast! Yum! Friendly people and great service. Highly recommended for home comfort food.

had heard about this cafe from other people so was keen to visit. very much a cafe still in the 70's but good home cooked food and very helpful staff. The bacon and egg pie was very good. Two of my fellow diners had toast...which came pre buttered which was a bit odd.More

This cafe was right around the corner from the Holiday Inn which we discovered by using TripAdvisor. We had a wonderful breakfast and the people who own/work at the cafe are very friendly. Just like the other review stated, there is an old time feel...at this cafe.More

Don't think Peppers would be the place for Indian food. Several Indian places in town, ask your motel when you get there.
