Weary travellers needing a good meal and a rest and we were not disappointed. It was a hot day but inside was cool and eclectically decorated making for a pleasant experience the staff were friendly and eager to please.

I travel for work all over Qld. I know where all the toilets are and where to stop for a decent coffee! This one is good. The young lady behind the counter is beautiful also. Deb
