When we first walked in, we were greeted with a welcome and smile. I had the smashed avocado with dukkah and goats cheese. My partner had the eggs benedict. Everything was cooked to perfection and was just beautiful. Well worth the trip, even from Melbourne. We also agreed that it was one of the best coffees we've had! Thank you.

Great staff, great food, lovely quaint atmosphere, which our group probably disturbed for everyone else with how loud we were, but we received excellent service despite our rowdiness! Haha.... Definitely coming back here, there's a million cafes in Melbourne but few would compete with this one.

It's my must-stop cafe whenever I'm in Kyneton. For the fellow fussy coffee drinkers- I drink long blacks & have high expectations of the... More

The food I had with a friend was totally disappointing and my friend agreed. I had the tacos and they were greasy, oily and all tasted the same although meant to be different. My friends pumpkin bread was revolting and he had a small amount of mine and we both felt too oily. I still feel sick ....
