First class salmon and Caesar salads - so much better than highway food- coffee great too! Well worth the minor detour - restful snd really friendly staff - and the home made treats with the coffee - tops! Relaxing and refreshing. Rest room spotless.

So much nicer to pull off the Hume into Gunning and The Merino Cafe than those nasty "service centres". Good food on the footpath watching the locals come and go, and go about their day. Parked in front. Great food, great coffee. Hard to beat.

We visited on a sunny Sunday morning and sat in the garden. It was a nice morning tea in a very pleasant setting. Lots of cake and sweet options as well as breakfast and lunch. The markets were on so the cafe was quite busy.
