The Stables is a welcome find in Bairnsdale. I travel through this town frequently and have found it difficult to get a really good coffee and to feel funky whilst drinking it. The food choices are good for a light lunch or snack with delicious, thick milkshakes as well. When I was there there was a large variety of generous servings of frittata, wraps, and cakes. The outside courtyard is spacious and shaded with umbrellas whilst inside there are two levels and ample room to move between the tables. This is a great place to hang out.
