Since 2010, Sweethearts, in its refurbished 'corner store' building, has been sourcing and serving up organic and locally procured produce to feed the needs of the traditional, the vegetarian and the gluten-free diner.
The food is the familiar cafe breakfast and lunch - eggs bene, BLT, steak sandwiches, salads and cakes - but there are innovative recipes as well. It's made fresh, with care, in good portions at reasonable prices - exactly what you want from a small 'country cafe'.
This is a place best visited in fair weather, because the dining is mostly al fresco. The shop's interior is mostly display cabinets, coffee machine and kitchen. That said, there are a couple of tables and seats in the beautifully air-conditioned inside.
Even so, dining al fresco allows one to enjoy the country air, and the ''corner store' awning out front provides great shade and a good view of the quiet town surrounds. It's for groups of four; larger groups have seating under cover along the building's side. Sweethearts will cater for small functions, such as birthday parties and business meetings.
This is modern cafe cuisine in a peaceful setting. Expecting a horse and buggy to go by - that's the period feel of Eudlo - I counted maybe five cars in the time I sat and waited for my delightful breakfast of eggs benedict and salad.
Eudlo isn't a big town, so finding Sweethearts isn't difficult. Cruise the main street, you can't miss it. The roads to it have some picturesque rural and bush valley vistas. From Tanawha, the road goes through Ilkley and winds up, down and round through bushland; from Palmwoods its bush and pastures.
Sweethearts is open daily, 8am to 3pm, closed only Monday. For the 'drive-in-the-country' day out, Helena's is a worthwhile wayside stop.
