This place doesn't look like much but the waffles are worth the wait. Best tasting genuine Belgium waffles.

Stopped in here for a coffee. Have had difficulty in the outback getting my wife her decaf soy latte (needed due to allergies) but the had it all here. Excellent coffee and amongst the best I’ve had for some time. Very friendly couple providing excellent service.

Every shop in this town sells opal/stone/gems, and some sell something else also with that. Waffle it is for this place in that regard. And oh boy the waffles are really tasty and good, it certainly beats expectation in a small town. On the other hand, the hosts are lovely to chat with - you will enjoy the experience

We popped in for a coffee and what an unexpected experience.
The waffles were amazing and the staff were fantastic Local Scotsman Jimmy has lived and mined in Coober Pedy for 40 years kept us entertained with his local knowledge and incredible stories.
So glad we dropped in. Put it on your bucket list if you're up there.

Have eaten here a number of times that I have visited Coober Pedy and have felt welcome every time. The food servings are generous and delicious and the staff very friendly and chatty. The scotsman very engaging and funny man. Would definitely recommend as part of the Coober Pedy experience
