Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: 1920S general store converted to a 600 square metre coffee shop with wide range of hot and cold food, slices and drinks plus soft-serve ice-cream. Dine in or take away and masses of space to sit outside under the Peltiflorum tree with views to the fountain and war memorial. Helium balloons also available for sale for any occasion, photographic studio for portraits and photo books and photographs on display. Saturday morning a local artist does an exhibition of his artwork whilst a local opal cutter cuts and polishes opal so people can see how it's done. Coffee is city-style, fair-trade, organic supporting third world farmers - all made by trained baristas. We are serious about coffee. The nearest comparable quality would probably be Melbourne.

Thoroughly enjoyed our relax stop in Cunnamulla at Boulders and interesting blend of the old (the big old building the restaurant is housed in) and the modern. Great coffee and a good range of eats, lovely cakes. A sign at the counter advises you That you may have to wait a while (for food) but just think, maybe there is something worth waiting for..
True enough. If you have the time, it's well worth the stop, as service can be a bit delayed especially when there's quite a few others in the restuarant, but probably not for you if you're in a hurry. Well worthwhile though.

Dear Webbedfli...
Thank you so much for your positive feedback and comments. Being new in this business we have been overwhelmed at times by its popularity. Our systems are improving all the time as we are finding ways to increase our speed when everybody arrives at the same time! It is fantastic meeting people travelling through Cunnamulla and we are encouraged by the amount of local loyal customers already.
All the best.
Regards.
Nicky & Paul

Newly opened, I was fortunate to enjoy Boulders when locumming at the medical centre. Let's face it, Cunnamulla doesn't have much in the way of dining choices during the day (pub meals are quite good)...Boulders fills the niche well offering excellent coffee, delicious breakfasts and lunch meals. Also interesting are the photo displays. FRiendly service and should prove popular with the grey nomads, as well as visiting flyin/flyout professionals and the locals.

Dear RoadkillGourmet
Thank you for building us up so much in our early days. We see a lot of business people including many health professionals through our doors who come to Cunnamulla regularly. We feel optimistic that even when it's not the tourist season business will continue to prosper.
Hope to see you again if you're back here as a locum.
Regards.
Nicky & Paul
