We were with a group for dinner. Raylene uses traditional bush food and spices with a more conventional and familiar menu. The food was wonderful.

Eating at the cafe not only provides a... More

We had a catered dinner here with fellow travelers. The place is very casual and not fancy. The service was slow, but the food was really interesting and very tasty. We'd been looking forward to local food during the first part of our trip and finally found it here. It is definitely worth a stop.

Their name may say they can cook but my experience was not enjoyable Only had a toasted sandwich and coffee Price was more then expected sandwich was less then hoped for and the coffee needed more sugar then I am allowed. Very disappointing

Wanted to order from menu supplied but had to order from food that was already prepared! Food that I was able to choose was tasty.

I attended a function last week there and the food was flavorsome, varied and delicious. Went back today for lunch and the rice paper rolls were just as good. My friend had the kangaroo pie that was also delicious. Good selection of bush tucker. The vibe was really friendly and relaxed.
