Food was acceptable and prices was fair. I had a hotdog and it was a 7/10. I paid $4 for it which was a good price.

I was recommended Waack’s bakery coffee by a friend a few months ago. It’s one of the nicest coffees in Ararat and so affordable. Their iced coffees are fantastic and only $4.90, where’s anywhere else is $6+. Very underrated

Ararat is about an hours drive from Ballarat and a nice town to stop, stretch the legs and look around. While you're doing so, pop into this place and grab some hot chips, a drink and a chat. Warm and friendly.
