We stopped off here late in the afternoon as we noticed that it had nicely shaded chairs and tables outside. The interior is a step back in time with lots of timber, high ceilings and a lovely display counters and cabinets. Very friendly service - we were served promptly and ordered iced coffee and iced chocolate with some choc chip... More

We love the relaxed atmosphere at this cafe come general store. The food is good wholesome fare and there are yummy cakes to wet your appetite. They also sell produce and wares. A great place to have a meal or a coffee.

Always enjoy the coffee there. On Thursday sitting and enjoying the afternoon sun and having a coffee with lightly toasted Banana Bread couldn't have asked for better. Really refreshing to have somewhere close by where you are always greeted with a smile and excellent service. Thank you guys.

there is something great about this place but its not 'flash' , fancy, or pretentious. A good cuppa, homemade scones and warm and cosy!

We visited for a Devonshire tea on a Saturday. This is a busy, efficient, fun place to lunch or relax over a coffee. Lovely old wares ... And still houses the post office! Beautiful scones and the meals looked wonderful. The staff were friendly and helpful. So vibrant and fun!

I love coming up to the Trading Post. It does get very busy though, so be prepared to queue at peak times of the day. Their brand of tea is delicious

We stopped here for afternoon tea on the way to mount Macedon. Ample street parking. Plenty of homemade food as well as locally made produce for sale. Beautifully decorated. We enjoyed a Devonshire tea. Scones were to die for. Can't wait to return.

We only dined in once and the food was pretty average, but the take away food was really yum (we had soups - pumpkin & coconut, pea & ham) and lasagna and savoury muffins, all were very good.
