Dropped in for coffee for road, had a brownie, sensational. Coffee is great, food is fresh and very tasty, advertised as made on site. Staff are friendly, it open long hours, 6am to 4pm daily. Well done

Great coffee, amazing food and friendly service. We stumbled upon the coffee shack whilst waiting for a rover cruise and ended up going back every day for our heart starter and breakfast. Highly recommended!!

Coffee was extremely hot and very pale. The carrot cake too burnt for my taste. The muffin and sandwich were really good.

Visited here the morning we left strahan. Had been past this place numerous times and finally got to sort in. Good coffee, good food and friendly service. Nice little cafe and perfect for a quick snack.

Barista coffee and Avó toastie accompanied by a banana bread. Cant go wrong. Went there every morning while in Strahan. Good staging before boarding the GC cruise.

A little more selection of food and it would get 5 stars. We headed here for an early breakfast, there were half a dozen baked goods and toastie sandwiches on offer. The coffee was very good.

Unfortunately the staff member who served us didn’t seem like she really wanted to be there, not chatty at all and answered us with a monotone one word answers. Even though I asked for an extra strong coffee it was weaker than a normal one.

Fabulous staff, friendly service and good simple food . Coffee is good too. Best toasted sandwiches in the area and the muffins are great, especially the savoury ones.

From memory, yes. But I don't need gluten free so don't always notice.
