We had a good lunch here from a fairly extensive menu. The food was tasty and good value. The manager was very helpful with suggestions and was able to help us with directions to an attraction nearby too.

We decided to walk part of the Drakes Trail and came across the Drakes Cafe. The food and drink were excellent, very tasty and very fresh, and the help from our host re our onward journey was invaluable. Highly recommended.
