The window is full of wonderful cakes and I chose the Toblerone Cheese cake. When I asked the lady how many calories it was she replied "Doesn't matter. When you cut it they all fall out." Delicious and coffe, as you expect in this part of the word, was terrific.

We have a couple of regular cafes when in Williamstown and this is one, good quality coffee and great cakes that are always fresh and a large serving. Staff are great for visitors that want some local knowledge when they have a free moment. Look forward to our next coffee !!

Called in here on a hot spring day of 32 degrees and asked if they serve iced coffee. Waitress said yes so ordered 2 iced coffees and a vanilla slice. Iced coffees were terrible - just a glass of warm coffee with some whipped cream from a can on top ( no ice cream or ice to be seen). Vanilla... More
