Tried this lovely little bakery during a trip through. Focaccia breaky roll was pretty impressive and service was speedy. Plenty of seating . Lovely little spot. Coffee was a bit milky for a cappuccino, but overall would come back.

We've been here a number of times on journeys interstate or going to the Grampian. Perfectly fine meals (pies, vanilla slices and coffees) all at a reasonable price. Right in the heart of town. Interesting artworks on the walls from local artists for sale inside.

The people here are lovely! Pies are quite good (not the best I've had but far from the worst) and a lovely little place to sit, with local art displayed on the walls. Well worth a stop in.
