We are never disappointed with this little cafe, plenty of seating out in the fresh air, a good variety of sweet bites and friendly service every time we call in - all this despite the COVID blues!

Thank you trip advisor for recommending this special cafe. What a great local atmosphere on the Ovens River. My eggs with chorizo and avocado was absolutely delicious. Great coffee. Quick and friendly service. Highly recommended to others too.

Dropped in for breakfast and had a dish that was so good I can’t begin to describe it so I’ll post a photo instead.

Would’ve liked to review this cafe but unfortunately on a Monday morning- after Melbourne could visit - they weren’t open! When checking it out lots of tourists were there saying that they should be open - unfortunately a chance lost

A lovely quirky place with awesome brekky at lunchtime.... we sat in the shaded area next to garden and pot belly fire. It wasn’t on as it was 29’c. Highly recommend.

We stopped in after doing the rail trail from Bright. They have a simple cafe style menu with all the classic. We were so impressed with their version of a toasted sandwich and chicken wrap. Don't underestimate the flavours. Yummy chai latte too. Thanks guys....Keep it up!! Can't wait to return to enjoy your country hospitality with a punch of personality.More

Stopped in Porepunkah on our journey and we found the Rail Trail Cafe. Service was friendly, lunch was huge, simple and tasty. A bit on the pricey side but good value.

Excellent menu and food prep. The dude was whipping up gourmet stuff out of nowhere. Coffee was average but i went for the food so 5 stars.

Great coffee. The food was so tasty and came out very quickly especially for a group of ten. Great stop while bike riding along rail trail
