Such a cute little place perfect for a break in travel, the food was good and the staff were really friendly, the little bits of history was a great way to stretch the legs and break up the trip, definitely a new stop.

Coffee okay but took awhile. Cheap Bromeliads from the craft shop definitely worth the stop. The whole place needs a good renovation and some Italians love. More Italian food on offer would complete the ”New Italy” name Great free stop and flushing toilets 6.5/10

Stopped for a coffee and a short break. Easy access from the highway and good coffee. Didn't go to any shops. Museum has few displays, mostly information if you have time to read.
