A great warm cafe to go to for afternoon tea. We had scones, jam & cream, they were delicious and cappuccinos, very tasty. The hosts were polite and friendly, thank you Rail Trail Cafe for a lovely afternoon tea.

We arrived back from a walk towards the end of the afternoon but despite this we were served homemade scones, cream and jam and fresh pots of hot tea. Interesting menu.

Really excellent food and coffee. Another great place to stop for a bite if traveling in the area. Being right on the Trail, this Cafe is perfect for replenishing burnt kilojoules after a few hours in the saddle.
