Called in for a cuppa on our journey through Zeehan. Lady was very happy and chatty, and made a great cup of coffee and hot chocolate. Lots of motor cycle/garage items to look at.

An interesting unexpected and delightful coffee stop. This little gem we found after a very long and difficult drive and longing for a cuppa. We were not disappointed . We certainly didn't expect the quality of food and coffee in this very out of the way town. An old mining town that in bygone times purported to be the capital... More

We must have arrived at the end of a busy shift because they had run out of milk and had to go and buy some at the local store.

Thank you for your review, fortunately we haven't got far to get milk when we run short. Yes we had been very busy . It's disappointing that the drinks were not to your liking. I apologise that the iced coffee was missing the ice cream, it was an oversite and has never happened before. And will I hope never happen... More

We found this little place through TripAdvisor and had a great lunch on the drive from Strahan to Stanley. Super friendly locals all happy to have a chat, homemade sausage rolls, great toasted sandwiches and quiche and salad. Coffee was really good too. Good old fashioned cafe with a homely television sitting area. I really liked this place :)

Lots of effort in making this cafe unique. Good food, coffee and friendly staff. Nick nacks collected from the 1950s provide a homely setting for the cafe in this historic mining town. Usefull drop in place of a long journey.
