This small place - a hall, way, two small living rooms - knows about the art of coffee making. And contains art, photo's, gifts, clothing, cards and other useful stuff. When you've been shopping at the New World, or before, get your shot of caffeine here. We also bought some of their marvellous picture cards.
We were pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant - thank you Lonley (its written this way on the business card of the restaurant) Planet - in this small town. They hide themselves in a (restored ?) art deco "town house". Interesting dishes, well prepared, very tasty. Very friendly - and patient - staff.
They use local ingredients. We had a white bait as starter, the venison (deer) and the lamb. Perfect, interesting and adventurous combinations of taste and texture. Don't skip the desert. And they also brew a great coffee - caffeine free. Not very expensive. Worth a detour.
One note: do not sit next to the side door: some people prefer the garden and the door doesn't always close well.
Favorite Dish: In this case the venison, but it might have been the lamd.
Carvery - 'A carvery is a restaurant where cooked meat is freshly sliced to order for customers' - Wikipedia. This concept is common in Australia, the United Kingdom and New Zealand. Often to be found in Pubs.
Basically it is the great roast dinner - meats are usually roast beef, pork. lamb and chicken served with roast potato, pumpkin/sweetpotato and a variety of green and coloured vegetables.
Favorite Dish: We both had roast pork and even though it was served without crackling it was really delicious and cheap.
I absolutely loved this cafe. It had interesting art work inside and the decor was awesome. It gave the impression of a coffeehouse upon arrival, but the food choices were great. You can sit on the porch and have great views of the bay. There were people who walked the beach after eating. The atmosphere was great. If you visit Cape Foulwind, you must eat here.
