We stopped by here to purchase a trout fishing licence. Also got coffee which was very good. State Highway coffee stops are often total guesswork until you try the coffee that you have just bought.

We enjoyed a sunny Sunday stop to try the coffee and cake - yummy and great value for money. It was good to be able to sit outside and read the newspaper too.

My husband is a sales rep and often travels past this cafe and stops for coffee, he is an aboslute coffee snob and says its the best coffee every time he's ever had!! So well worth a stop in.
