We've been here a number of times on journeys interstate or going to the Grampian. Perfectly fine meals (pies, vanilla slices and coffees) all at a reasonable price. Right in the heart of town. Interesting artworks on the walls from local artists for sale inside.

The people here are lovely! Pies are quite good (not the best I've had but far from the worst) and a lovely little place to sit, with local art displayed on the walls. Well worth a stop in.

Easy parking after seeing an appealing frontage was rewarded despite it being for a late lunch on a Saturday. Fresh sandwiches were quickly provided with great service. All the food on offer looked very good.
