My new favourite spot near QT! The loveliest atmosphere with the kindest staff and the food is amazing value for money.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and kind helping arrange a vegan option for me. The view and atmosphere is so beautiful and relaxing and watching the train come in as you eat is a real treat. 10/10 for everything- can't wait to come back!

Coffee was okay but generally the place was pretty average. Loud music, slow service and no scones or snacks. Disappointing.

We visited this cafe which is in the converted railway station. We only stopped for coffee, so can't comment in the food. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was a nice warm environment in which to sit on a cold wet day. There is alot of steam train memorabilia around and great views across the lake and mountains.

A cafe in a historic Railway station. Staff were very pleasant and accomodating. The Station has a historic steam train running 1.5 hour trips 2 a day at limited days that adds to the experience. Coffee and food was great. Recommend the stop.
