We were impressed with the front staff's friendly and top notch service. The barista makes excellent coffee! Breakfast was also very good with eggs cooked perfectly. You'd be surprised how often other cafe breakfasts have been very tragic. However, we couldn't fault anything at all!...We travel a lot but always make a mental note on which cafe has our fav coffee makers/specific beans. This will definitely be our place to stop the next time we pass by.More

The restaurant was the only one open here in Fairlie the evening. The moment we walked in, smiley staff seated us and lighted the candle. The service was attentive and the food very nice. We ordered a very nice tender lamb shank and the butter...chicken was very delicious followed by vanilla brulee and affogato. We will definitely remember this place for the next visit.More

We chose to have our morning tea here rather than queue at the bakery and i'm so pleased we did. The Irish man who served us was so friendly and welcoming he certainly contributed to making our short stop enjoyable. The coffee was fabulous and...we shared a tasty cheese scone. A lovely cafe and one we would definitely return to without hesitation. The cakes looked delicious and I hope to sample one next time.More

Best steak and chicken burger we have ever had. Could not fault this place. Service and food was absolutely amazing. Wish we had grabbed the name of the lady who served us but we will definitely be back again. Thank you!!

Had to go to Fairlie today, and as it was around lunch time we decided to go to Eat Deli bar, we always had beautiful meals there. Well what a shock, I ordered a Ham, cheese and tomato Toasted sandwich, what I received was 2...pieces of burnt bread with cold ham, cheese and tomato inside. What a let down, if I had known it had new owners I would have gone to the pie shop, now I am sorry we didn't. My husband had a egg bacon and hash brown in a bun that he really enjoyed. At least that was one good thing, but may not bother again.More

Nice and warm. Poor customer service, from 1 staff member. Forgot about the curry that was returned to the kitchen because it was cold and then reheated in the microwave for the third time. Wouldn't be my first choice.

Looking for a small dinner I found this restobar with tables in and outdoor. I chose the avocado salad with chicken. It contained also roasted hazelnuts, cranberries and pieces of mandarin. Thanks for this nice recepy :-)
