At the completion of the ride from Clyde to Middlemarch this was a nice place to stop for a toasted sandwich and a cold beer. The service was friendly and the cafe offers inside and outside seating.

Just a pit stop and a pie, but a good pie. Good coffee and friendly service. Easy parking.l would imagine that it gets quite busy when the train arrives from Dunedin. I will just say that the museum is only open after midday until 3or4.
