Stumps is one of our "go to" cafes for a good, reliable meal. The staff are friendly and attentive, the meals are delicious and the cafe is in a nice location. This review is for our last visit only, where we had chicken caesar salads and coffee for lunch. Meals were well priced, came to the table in reasonable time and tasted good. Only complaint was the bacon was rather over-cooked (cremated I'd say) which was a bit of a let down for the dish. Other than that, we had an enjoyable meal in nice cool comfort when it was very hot outside. (Hope the bacon was just a one-off mistake!)

We arrived right on closing time after a fascinating visit to the Bradman Museum. The staff were more than happy to make us a takeaway coffee.

Exhausted after our fascinating tour of the Bradman Museum, we decided to try our luck for lunch at the appropriately named Stumps Cafe next door.

Lured by the yellow star on the menu beside the Bradman Beef Burger & Chips, we were treated to a truly great Australian hamburger. The ingredients were Angus meat patty with bacon, caramelised onion, beetroot, tomato, lettuce, tomato relish and aioli sauce served with chips. It had none of the cheese and pickles of the imported variety, and none of the eggs or pineapple of the 'with the lot' hamburger. It was a true blue burger.

Our drinks were a perfect match - Kirks Ginger Beer, Kerri's Cloudy Apple and a short black (with Jaffa). There was a large bottle of cold table water.

Our friend had a smoked salmon sandwich - real salmon which was lightly toasted and was also delicious. They do have scones, muffins, slices and brownies, but we were well fed and passed them by.

The waitress provided excellent service. The prices were reasonable.

And with the Museum ticket being an all-day ticket where you can come and go as many times as you wish, Stumps Cafe is a great place for lunch and afternoon tea.

Normally we rave about this place, but our last outing here was just so-so. While the service was friendly as usual, the food itself wasn't up to scratch. Our burgers seemed to be slapped together in a hurry and just didn't have the care that's usually shown and therefore the taste wasn't quite the same. Thankfully the coffee was good... but we still left feeling a little robbed considering there wasn't much change from $50.

Went there for brunch prior to visiting the Bradman Museum - great burger made from the local produce, plus scones, reasonable priced.
