This cafe is a standout, not so much for its food or ambience but for its location in the Nyinkka Nyunyu cultural centre and art gallery. In the main street of Tennant Creek, the cutting-edge building is a terrific art space adorned with colourful, dynamic works by local artists. The cafe serves healthy food and juices, and good coffee. The inlaid floor was designed by the community and features a bush banana motif with a motto that translate as ‘when you are hungry, eat bush bananas’.
