Daringly called “Cafe” this place can be found at the turn off to Broulee at Mogo.
For a longtime this was a junkyard next to the creek with a sign that promised a non existant Cafe. Now a cafe does exist here and even proffers a passable brew.
I didn’t have to wait long for my coffee and while waiting noticed that they sell flathead fillets, which along with the rusting tractors and long grass brings a coasty feel to this venue.
There is indoor and outdoor seating, most of which looks like it came from the tip, which kind of suits.
The coffee is a smooth rich corporate roast, not too stale but not exciting.
Roasting the coffee on site would really lift the game here but it’s not that kind of venue.
It’s more the kind of place where the barista gets a really tense and serious look and is triumphant when the result is something approaching a coffee.
I forgot to ask if there was wi-fi, there was however a large flat screen tv showing videos of the hamburgers available.
This place will probably do ok given it’s directly opposite the rest stop and toilets that a lot of travellers use.
