Here again for afternoon tea after a cycle ride - the brownie heated up, and then two scoops of ice-cream, was great, as usual.

Great food, awesome service! The owner showed us through the smoking process and his incredible custom made smoker. And even gave us free samples of his butter, eggs and cheese. We will tell our friends and we will be back!

The smoked meat aromas were very enticing. Stopped here for coffee and cake after cycle ride to Warburton via O’Shannassy Aqueduct Trail. Chocolate Brownie (warmed) with ice-cream was excellent.

Great little cafe with its own Smoker out the back. There appears to be nothing the owner Alex can't smoke. Delicious butter and cheeses, along with the most amazing local meats. Plenty of friendly banter to keep you entertained. Highly recommend the briskett burger.
