We couldn't have pulled up with a flat tyre at a better place. The staff were warm, welcoming and helpful while we sorted out our tyre issues. The food was very tasty too...we visited twice!

We popped in one morning for a couple of coffees. The service was great and the coffees were too. The staff were really warm and welcoming and we stood and chatted for ages about the town, opals and dogs. Lovely place.

Our family of 4 enjoyed waffles for lunch and we all thought they were great! My sons had a milkshake and iced chocolate which they really liked!

We popped in on recommendation from a fellow traveler to check out there little noodling gift packets and kids necklace set and as a bonus got a chocolate sundae while we were there. Very friendly staff and wonderful dessert selection.

The waffles are very yummy. The prices are good and the staff very friendly. Also got a little shop inside with opals etc. One of many opal shops in Coober Pedy. A must eat at place.
