This rustic cafe and produce store is housed in a charming 1880s heritage-listed building, which was once a bustling general store in this former goldmining town. High ceilings, original long counter benches and open fires all add to the country ambience. Located about 100 kilometres from Melbourne, it is about halfway to the snowfields of Mount Buller and just perfect for a welcome coffee break, with good homemade pies, cakes, breads, slices and biscuits. Try the beef and mushroom or chicken and leek pies, hearty soups in winter or always warming traditional Indian dishes such as tandoori chicken, beef vindaloo, lamb saag and lentil dahl. Regulars come back for the decadent chocolate brownie, lumberjack-style apple and fig cake, and gluten-free options such as chocolate almond or orange and lemon polenta.
