Alas Cafe not open on our Tuesday drive .. should have checked.
Love to return & soak up the total country atmosphere.
The eco/organic & local ethos is great to hear about from the passion of the owner/staff.
This has to be a true hidden gem ... well worth the drive ... but hey check when Kitchen/cafe is open!

We read some good reviews so popped in for a look and were more than disappointed.

The coffee was good, but an attempt at an ethos of paddock to plate that didn't breathe it from the core, and food that wasn't nearly as good as it's presentation let us down.

The home made maple syrup lacked maple, the sweet potato french toast was burnt and lacklustre. The bacon was dry and overdone.

There was no sauce with the eggs but when we asked we were offered tomato relish or japanese mayo.

The mushroom crepes were ok but didn't exactly pop with flavour, in fact, none of what we had did.

The place has a grey new shed that feels a little sterile and wannabe but doesn't quite pull it off. It is also pretty pricey for what you get.

There is a grocery store next door and they sell random things like boots and shovels.

This place has potential but we walked out feeling like it was weird and the whole thing just doesn't gel together.

Will give it a miss next time and get a pie at Kandanga Store instead.

Lovely ambience in the Mary Valley hinterland, a lovely scenic drive from the coast showing the diversity of countryside and views.
The menu constantly changes and always has a diversity of interesting dishes.
Ordered the mushroom crespelle but instead of one large piece, arrived with 5 mini crespelles, wonderful mushroom taste.

Beautiful, peaceful location with friendly service.
The breakfast menu is amazing with a great range of choices, in fact it was hard to decide what to have. Six of us all had something different and each dish was wonderful... really tasty and fresh.
Highly recommend

My friend and I had lunch today and it was absolutely delicious. We both had the haloumi burgers and were amazed that a burger without meat could be so good.
