As it was Tuesday when I travelled through I can’t comment on the food or service. Quaint and rustic little corner cafe that would be a welcome stop if it were open with indoor and outdoor seating available.

Great cafe in Porepunkah, excellent coffee, very good service and a selection of yummy cakes. Quirky little place catering to cyclists, locals and tourists. Tables inside and out, clean bathrooms, lots of character.
