This is an excellent cafe. A review of it appeared here, purportedly by me, which was somewhat critical. I want to make it quite clear that I love this spot. My family and I have visited many times and it is always a pleasant experience....More

The food is innovative, delicious and fresh, with many healthy options to choose from. You have to try the milkshakes.... they are divine. Excellent coffee, served by friendly staff. Something for everyone on this menu!

As you drive on the main road into Jacobs Well is the Castaway Cafe on the left hand side before the caravan park. Plenty of staff to help for a coffee, dine in or takeaway, breakfast or lunch. Fresh great tasting food.
