Peat’s canteen, peat’s island

As you can tell by the photo, this isn’t a place that you’d normally think of as a cafe: it’s a Pacific Highway road-side service station, and on the day we visited, they were out of petrol (every so often, a big 4WD would pull in, see the sign, and spin up a lot of gravel on its way out).

Though they didn’t know the difference between a long black and a short black, they managed to put together something drinkable, and something that gave me enough energy to get through the last leg of the driving back to Sydney.

Really, that’s all you need from a roadside cafe, isn’t it?
