Food is always great and has a really welcoming country feel - the staff and friendly. The gifts and nick nacks are a great selection and well priced. A great place for breakfast or lunch as a treat or break on the highway.

Gunning is an easy turn-off and a welcome break from speeding along at 100k/hr. The Merino Cafe serves a respectable cup of coffee and a tempting array of home cooked cakes. A nice clean toilet too.

Touring around in a camper van I decided to take a break and grab some breakfast. I had never heard of Gunning so just took a chance and called in. Cafe was well worth the stop - coffee was great and breakfast excellent.

This place abounds with old fashioned, friendly, quality food and service. Inside and out, it has a lovely atmosphere but most importantly, the food is fabulous. Don’t go past the temptations in the display. Everything is delicious. Favourites for us were the lamb burger and...More
