Stopped in on the way home from the west coast. Great little menu and service to match Wedges and gravy and the fish burger really good as well as the home made soup.

We had a recent trip to Derwent bridge and went here for breakfast. Cheap good value eggs and bacon. Limited menu. Coffee wasn’t the best at all but food ok. The lady seemed friendly but the cook seemed cranky and not very welcoming.

Read the reviews with people saying great place to stop for a coffee, one even mentioned “better coffee than the mainland” ... love to know where they came from, but it certainly wasn’t Melbourne!!!! But to be fair, toasted sandwiches were a good old fashioned...More

Pies are fine, sandwiches a bit iffy, you have to take the bread on offer. I guess for someone who has just walked The Overland Track, it's luxury.
