Gunning is a little gem off the Hume and well worth a stop as is the Merino Cafe. Good feel, good coffee and a nice selection of easy food. Thoroughly recommended.

It's just a side trip off the Hume Highway past Yass and before Goulburn. Great café, great home cooked food and warm country service. I try to stop here on my trip north or south. Open for breakfast, lunch and just a coffee/tea and cake/slice.

We were travelling through and chose this cafe over the other in town as we liked the look of the vegetarian frittata ($15.50) on display. We both chose it and it came out very quickly, although it was a Tuesday lunch time and there weren't...More
