We stopped for lunch, the sign attracted us, "delicious food, and great coffee", or something to that effect. Most of the ingredients on the menu wasn't available, so we got bits of our selection, and fortunately we weren't charged the full price. They didn't even...More

It seems that there are new people running Blackwood Gully now and the food and service has improved immensely. I had a lovely quinoa salad here and Mona was a very friendly and efficient waitress. Will be back.

We should have followed the crowds and eaten over the road but only wanting a light lunch, didn't follow our first instinct and ordered here. What a shambles this place is. Service was lugubrious and without any personality. The food was just acceptable, a very...More
