This is one of our favorite cafes in the main street of Thames with seats in the pavement to enjoy the atmosphere of this old gold mining town. The food is always great to go with a cappuccino or flat white coffee.

The folks at Sola will do their best to accommodate special needs/requests. The food was not super flavorful but we knew it was clean and wholesome. Much appreciated after long travels. The staff were extremely helpful and nice.

Sola café features the usual fare: grilled sandwiches, mixed salads, coffees and teas of all kinds -- but they also offer vegetarian and vegan options, which is a decent option. It's counter-service, not fancy, but the servers are efficient and pleasant.

Stopped here for brunch and sat on the pavement chairs watching the local boy racers! Ordered an all day breakfast with extra avocado. Sausage and bacon was off... didn't realise it was a vegetarian place!
