We were in town for the 'Murwillumbah Art Trail 2017' and the place was hopping on a Sunday morning! Service was very warm and friendly - even though the staff were extremely busy with the influx of regulars and visitors. I think my eyes were too big for my stomach and I could easily have shared the big brekky!! It... More

Old school style eatery full of booths for a relaxed bite to eat. These milkshakes are a family favourite. They are so big you can re-fill the milkshake glass about three times from the big silver one that they are served in. Definitely only need to order one to share between two young children. Food is good too. The only... More

A good authentic diner feel with good food and drink. Everything is quick to come out and is a nice little place. It's a shame when it's not open when it's meant to be though but otherwise a great little place.

Surprisingly large old style cafe with a great range or traditional cafe fare. My daughter had a fantastic beef & mushroom pie (smelt and looked tops) and I had a vanilla slice. Place was being very well patronised ... understandable as the food was good, service friendly and prices very reasonable. Worth a visit if you're in the area and... More

What a great place to stop for coffee, cake or light meal. It was like going back in time with good old fashioned service, with vintage surroundings and ambience. This is a must to visit when visiting Murwillumbah. The pictures tell only some of the story.
