About the listing
Cliffy’s has that rare character and history that welcomes you to a warm, homely place which is why it has become one of the region’s best known and most frequented cafés. The old signs promoting Bushell’s coffee and Cadbury Cocoa still adorn the windows, and the ceiling-high timber shelves are still reached by an old ladder. Locals and visitors alike love pulling up a stool at one of the original long timber counters or sitting outdoors under the shade of the verandah and grapevines.
Back in the 1950s, Cliffy Hauser’s general store in Daylesford was famous for an extraordinary range of produce, groceries and supplies crammed into a rustic timber building. Fast forward more than 60 years and the heart and soul of this legendary store have been lovingly preserved. Attentive service is happily old style too, serving up excellent coffee and brunch.
