For those that love a good coffee while supporting local, Cafe 72 is great.
What used to be the old recreation centre and now used as a church, Cafe 72 is a place to meet friends and sit for coffee and cake or a meal.
It's run by volunteers so check the Facebook page just in case there are unexpected closures.
The cafe has a playroom which is great for the kids to play while parents catch up with friends. There's movies playing on the television, a cubby, play kitchen, dolls houses and many more toys to keep the kids entertained.
For those without kids theres a separate area to sit and enjoy a meal or coffee. Meals are reasonable priced with different daily specials.
