We had a large family get together here prior to Christmas and it was the perfect spot. It was central for all family members but adding on to the great atmosphere, space for the kids to run around and a great area for us all to be together out the back was fabulous. The meals were tasty and a good... More

This place has the structure of a colonial slab hut. It has extensive gardens and indoor and outdoor areas combined with amazing fried ly service...... and the food and drink is good too. It was great to let the kids (grandchildren) stretch there legs while we relaxed.

Small cafe set about 200 metres off the Hume Highway about 5 mins south of Yass. Country setting with horses, goats and an emu in the adjacent paddock. Venue is a rustic effect wool shed with beautiful garden. Service was great. Very friendly and efficient and the food was good- breakfast menu through to 11 (I think) and a reasonable... More

We stopped here with our family on the way to Canberra. We ordered coffees, hot chocolate and a plate of plain and date scones. The scones were a good size and the coffee was nice too. The atmosphere out the back is lovely with lots of Australiana pieces including a really nice water feature which is pleasant to sit next... More

Interesting cafe built in olde worked style by late owner. Beautifully created slab and wattle house, purpose built as cafe in delightful country town short drive from Yass, Queanbeyan and Canberra. Staff are friendly, food is delicious, setting interesting. Don't forget to speak to Mac the horse, the friendly goat and the jersey cow. I loved the cottage style garden.

Nice to see great old fashioned service with staff in period uniform. Worth a visit as a tourist attraction as well as world famous Devonshire Tea. Large shearers scones were a bit heavy but at least home made.

A very pleasant stop and great to have a break different to the "big commercial" stops. We had Devonshire Tea and it was excellent value. Massive scone, coffee and tea spot on. Farm animals for kids and toilets clean. Fresh local fruit on sale. Excellent family stop! I will stop here again.

My second visit today, this time with the better half. The sign says they don't do fast food so there could be a delay while they cook the food. In saying that there was a fair bit of fried food, but still other choices. Half had the seafood platter. I asked if it was just for one and was assured... More
