Beautiful big fire place with lots of seating and awesome selection of tasty food. The Sierra Motel is next door and across the road are the hot pools. Highly recommend this business. Kind regards,Al.

Terrible food, way too expensive for what we got. I think the hot chips were merely defrosted and put in to the cup and not cooked at all.

Great place to stop on the way through to other places. Yummy food and good coffee. Also have a chance to purchase New Zealand wool at its best in the fine selection of clothing available. Clean toilets. Worth a stop.

We arrived at 2.30pm after a day of cycling. Cold, tired and hungry. The pies where sensational. Home made, nothing to look at but flavorsome and delicious. Topped off with a very very good coffee (I like mine strong and wasn't disappointed) plus a very...good Afghan. Despite looking like a fast food joint for all comers, it delivers on quality and flavor.More

I'd been hankering for whitebait along this trip so stopped dead at the whitebait omlette for breakfast which kept me going well into the afternoon. Friendly service, great cabinet selection, heaps of parking and bike racks. It's obviously a locals favourite and I'd stop in...here again in a heartbeat.More

This unbelievable cafe, can you smell those Christmas Lillies? Food astonishingly good, service right up there, wonderful ambience and atmosphere. We went for lunch yesterday, lamb shanks to die for, only $19.90, and again today for coffee and the BEST custard square. Excellent parking. An...absolute must.More

Lovely food and friendly service but was very concerned to see most of the staff behind the counter were wearing their masks below their noses or not at all and taking them on and off frequently. The young waitress delivering to tables was the only...one of all staff that wore her mask correctly. There was also a sign saying check in with your vaccine pass on an iPad. I couldn’t see the iPad for ages and then saw no one was checking and few people were checking in. This was on Thursday Jan 20th when omicron cases announced in the community. Much better attitude to Covid safety is neededMore
