Loved our visit to this little cafe located at the State Coal Mine Wonthaggi. Great coffee. We shared a hamburger and chips, and BLT. The hamburger came with toasted bun, no brioche thank goodness. Good old fashioned tasty food and not outrageous prices. Also with...COVID they checked we had used the QR code, which I wish more places would take notice of. Free entry to the above ground Mine area makes it worth a visit.More

Well worth a visit. Free admission to above ground but we went on the under ground tour. 90 minutes deep under with a guide who was very knowledgeable of the history. Also a lovely cafe for lunch after the tour.

The food is simple cafe fair. Honest, cheap and tasty. Lovely owners, very quick to serve and came out to ask us how everything was. Brilliant service, as it should be.

The cafe has a decent selection of pies, a pasta dish, soup, standard cafe food like chicken nuggets and toasted sandwiches, and an all- day breakfast menu. Friendly service.

Stepping from the cool weather after touring the grounds, the warmth and smells of the cafe were welcoming. Good variety of snacks for pre-coal mine tour and then more substantial options for post our explorations.

Restaurant food was great valve and excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Mine tour was well worth the entry fee and highly recommended. The tour guide was awesome and had the kids captivated. If your around Wonthaggi don’t miss it!
