Awesome little place. Stopped for coffee...which is great and added a savory pumpkin and feta scone to have with coffee. Delicious...
Friendly staff

Wow... what an awesome cafe located centrally in Port Elliot. The retro furniture brings back so many memories and makes you feel at home the moment you walk in. The outdoor balcony has a fantastic view, particularly if you enjoy watching the SteamRanger train. Service is extremely friendly. Plenty of variety on their menu and delicious food. Thoroughly recommend for a value for money breakfast/brunch/lunch while in the town. Dogs are welcome in the outdoor space which is really appreciated.

I visited for a coffee and it was a terrific tasting cup served in a retro cup. History is there for you to read and you do feel you’ve stepped back in time.
I returned the next day and enjoyed a lovely breaky!

Had coffee here before very good, this time we had brunch. A very large serving of scrambled eggs with bacon 2 pieces of sourdough toast yummy! Long black as usual out on the small deck looking down the Strand. We saw the cockle train pass just down the hill.
