Del and his lovely team couldn't have been nicer to us when we stopped off in O-Del-Emz on the Rail Trail. So helpful and kind and cracking food too. Definitely try out the lovely homemade cakes.

My wife and I called in here while in town recently for lunch based on good comments mainly on Facebook. We both ordered creamy mushrooms with toasted brioche and sautéed potato. What we got was a chunky mushroom soup. It was nice enough, but was...far from what we expected. The toasted brioche was a small offering that lacked the integrity required of toast for soaking up the juice. My coffee was OK, but certainly not worth raving about. As for the server asking if we wanted knives an forks, that was just weird. Everywhere else just puts the cutlery on the table. I’d likely go back, but would be asking for a description of the food to check that their interpretation of the menu item matches mine.More

We called in for lunch on a busy Friday. Allpress coffee was the attraction and there seemed to be a lot of takeaways in progress. Seems to be a favourite spot for locals. We ordered two pulled beef bagels from the cabinet which looked OK...but this turned out to be a mistake. They arrived with an odd squirt of aioli underneath the bagel and contained some odd sauce and cheese. As the afternoon wore on, both of us felt rather queasy. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone. The coffee was as expected. Pretty good.More

A diverse menu that had my mouth watering. Our respective choices were no disappointment - I'm usually not big on Cafe's but this one is excellent. Service was quick and staff pleasant and efficient. We will be back 😊

Dropped in for some lunch during our tour and noticed this cafe. I had the chicken, Brie and cranberry brioche roll. This was an mouthful of absolute delight. When the roll was presented, you could see the “love” in the making of the roll! The...cafe is only small but it is full of delightful sandwiches, cakes and pastries. Well recommended!More

We ordered sandwiches and, strangely, each of them came with a big squirt of aioli on the plate and under the sandwich. It overpowered the flavour of the sandwiches and made them soggy and messy.

Fantastic stop for lunch. Food we selected was very delicious and there were options for both vegetarians and vegans. In fact the range of both cabinet and menu items was excellent. We had yummy and filling chickpea feta filo rolls followed by a decadent and...delicious lime and coconut slice. Service was very friendly and prompt and it was a perfect place to stop en route. Parking at the door . Highly recommended.More
