My husband and I stopped for coffee and cake on our way north. Great find. Service very friendly and the fresh pastries and coffee so wonderful. Bought sandwiches and more treats for the road. So glad we found this special little cafe.

Dunno about the cafe downstairs, but the restaurant upstairs was great! Very friendly waitress, an amazing view and a lamb shoulder to die for. Highly recommend.

The ski field was closed so we took a road trip to Lake Hawea - what a beautiful spot! We had coffee and biscuits here and it was amazing. From the happy helpful girl behind the counter to the entertainment from all the locals coming for their pies and coffee - we enjoyed our stop there immensely. If only I had the nerve to ask for the recipe for those Anzac biscuits.

Was recommended to go to Sailz for a meal. We visited the cafe for lunch one day during the week. Was a very foggy day cafe seemed to have a few people about mainly tradies either eating their pies or waiting for their orders. We waited at the counter to be served but was asked to wait as the young person was not sure what to do. Appeared to be a student filling in and was being taught how to do the orders on the till?. Once meal ordered and we received our coffee we waited and waited for our order. When we followed this order up was told their was a backload in the kitchen. We could not see the clients about to see this however when we received our order some was still cold. As we had waited so long we just put up with it. Was really disappointed with the experience after the place being recommended to us by a local.

Sailz was great. Sat in front of 🔥, nice Australian Shiraz & local oat IPA beer. Pork belly, swede & artichoke gratin, Minaret venison with beetroot mash were all lovely. Lemon pot desert was citrusy & tasty. Amber was a great hostess, will return.
