• Café • Paynesville
We love locally produced and grown. We love homemade and made from scratch. Gippsland, and more specifically East Gippsland, is renowned for fresh quality produce. From the Stratford Free Range Eggs to our Gippsland Grain Fed Steak our preference is to support local producers and to shop local where we can.Our frittata, granola, berry compote, muffins, poached pears and many of our other menu items are made onsite from fresh ingredients and local produce by our skilled team of cooks. Please note: During periods where there is an excessive influx of patrons to the area, i.e.- festivals & public holidays we will be unable to reserve tables or take bookings. We are sorry for any inconvenience but we'd still love to look after you if we can.
