We came here for a quick lunch and had a good lunch with it not being great. The savory tart was a bit cold and bland while my daughter's lasagna was just OK. The highlight was my son's sticky date cup cake.

Stopped here fo a bite of lunch as we had eaten here some time ago, however this time we found the wait staff rather pathetic in their attitude. We order a coffee first and on its delivery asked some questions about their menus which seemed to be to hard for them. As a result we finished our coffe which was... More

Food is always consistantly good, though the size of the meal seems to have shrunk from when I've eaten there before. Service can be OK, but it seems to be selective & a bit reserved.

We go here every year when visiting family for Christmas because we like the coffee. But each time we recall extremely rude service from the wait staff. They get particularly busy around the public holidays and I empathize that the pressure is high. However, they need to staff adequately or not open at all. Although their staffing levels seemed fine... More

Good coffee good service ..meals read up well on the menu. Presentation missed the target, meals come with salad. .The salad was 2 cos lettuce leaves discolored at the cut , and a dozen spinach leaves. The meals where over priced for what was produced.

A great country town cafe and food store that is trying to take things to a high standard. Good coffee ok service but fairly priced. it is a good place to spend time when in Woodend for a coffee and to grab some interesting food items to take away

We had lunch here on a Saturday. The breakfast menu is served until 1pm so we were lucky to get there before that. I had the eggs on toast with bacon for $12 while my partner had lasagne from the lunch menu. The food was terrific, my eggs were done to perfection and the bacon had a lovely Smokey flavour....

Wow, what a fabulous place. Met friends for lunch here and it was great. The coffee was perfect, the food was great with a huge variety, and their breakfast menu goes through till 1pm. The service is warm and friendly. Great value! Really worth stopping here.
