“Very nice welcoming country restauraunt”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We were staying in one of the cottages close by and walked up most mornings for coffee or breakfast and some afternoons for tea. Very fresh food. Good coffee and lovely staff. They even made our dogs welcome!
Nice part of the South West

Thanks for spending the mornings with us! It was a tad chilly, the time you guys were down, but your dogs and yourselves were lovely warm hearted people and fur-people! Hope to see you again next time you are in the area. Note - We now have a outdoor heater on the deck!!

“Nice food”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

I just like the food, especially impressed with their laksa. We were rather surprised to see such a delectable asian food in this restaurant. The journey going there along cave road is worthwhile trip, able to enjoy the scenery in along the road in Leuwin National Park.

Thanks so much for your review! It really helps us spread the word, and I love making the laksa! I learnt from a lovely lady from Malaysia- I will let her know she taught me well! Thanks again.

Reviewed 7 May 2014

You can check out an amazing gallery and then have restaurant quality food in what feels like the middle of forest far from everywhere else.

“lacks attention to detail”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We visited the cafe in the afternoon. The service and the food was a bit iffy. The wait to get served sat the counter was slow. the food on the counter was uncovered with a few flies around. The coffees came reasonably quickly but were lukewarm.

Sorry you didn't have a great visit to the cafe. As for the service, we had a staff member down sick over the weekend so I'll put it down with that. I have discussed this review with staff, and we feel we have resolved the coffee issue. Each barista prides themselves on great coffee. Thank you for your constructive criticism.
