Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had booked and received confirmation that 5 of were coming on 27th February at 11:00am. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived and everything was closed. We read that they weren’t even open on a Tuesday!! What the hell??? Why bother sending a confirmation or...could they have even rang us to advise they weren’t open?? Anyway The Gallery got our money on that day.More

Off the main drag and tucked away. A small oasis for a hungry traveller and local alike. Delicious coffee and food AND all the cakes and pastries are made on-site (not bought frozen like so many cafes now). You can taste the difference. Wonderful staff....Dogs welcome too. And it's definitely worth a walk along the railway track to the bird hide and back (6.2km) to work up an appetite for cake!More

When you have a dedicated crew who can make really good coffee AND you have home made food to add to that…. You are on a winner! Well done Clare and crew!

Located next to the Platypus Park and close to the CHinese Temple so I recommend visiting all three when you are in the area. I loved the repurposing of the train into seats within the carriages as well as the seating on the platforms, all...the bright colours and plants. I had the carrot cake and hot chocolate, which were delicious.More

My husband and I and our great friend Payam from Sydney enjoyed a day out in the Atherton tablelands. A great day all round and the Station Cafe was a real highlight. A fantastic rail and garden themed location, scummy vegetarian food, and warm friendly...service. And hats-off to the waiter - she very kindly took our tourist pix - thank you for a really nice experience.More

Wow! Where to start .... Firstly, the atmosphere is great. The cafe is set in an old railway station with the eating areas in the carriages (a stone's throw from the platypus viewing area). Secondly, the menu is extensive. Copious amounts of seriously fresh food...is served. Thirdly, the staff were friendly and a delight to chat with. Highly recommended!!!More

I would like to thank the staff member who went to the trouble of finding my phone number to tell me they had found my drivers licence which I thought I lost during a bike ride.

A great setting for a cafe. For an old Railway Engineer it was very nostalgic. Coffee was good and scones were excellent

Delightful and cheery spot with the most whimsical decor. The old train carriages provide seating and the beautiful flowers and plants make you feel tranquil in the surrounds. They don’t serve bacon as they don’t want the smell and grease permeating into the heritage building....But their croissants were amazing and the open grill sandwiches looked fabulous too. Our children loved the train set, and enjoyed that they could drive the trains themselves. Will definitely return when next in town.More

What a wonderful, relaxing, quirky spot for a delicious coffee and scone. We had a wonderful morning coffee here and enjoyed the welcoming hospitality of the owner and staff. Delicious house-made snacks and meals that emulates the very best of the old-style railway refreshment rooms...of years gone-by. Enjoy the historic atmosphere, model railway display as a bonus!!More
