Step into Mayse's Cafe at Pine Creek NT for delish meal
From outside, this cafe doesn't look different from any other cafe. It has a green lawn and outdoor setting look like a "normal"cafe.

But as soon you step inside, you can feel the 1950s ambience by the dining area against the wall and Hollywood movie stars' pictures hanging on the wall. You can find posters of Elvis, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe.

We arrived at Mayse's Cafe just before lunch time. The cafe was busy with local people and tourists passing by. Mayse's Cafe offers a choice of yummy food with very reasonable prices and a good atmosphere to enjoy your meal.

Located next to Top End pub, this is one of the best little cafes in the Territory. The food is homemade and comes in big portions. The burgers are terrific, but desserts like the carrot cake and pecan pie are the real stars of the show. You have to make sure you have enough room in your tummy to put one serve of on the plate because it's just more than plenty. But if you don't, you can share a plate.

Their signature menu item is a mango smoothie. With only $6 you can taste the heavenly mango smoothie in your mouth. Pine Creek has a big mango plantation and their mangoes are usually the first to ripen in the Territory, followed closely by Darwin

Beside satisfying your tummy with Mayse's Cafe's food, you can also browse through historical publications, and of particular interest is a book by Mayse Young who, along with her husband 'Bogger', was the publican at the next door pub from the 1940s to 1960s. Pine Creek publican Mayse Young was a legend by the age of twenty. In the Northern Territory of the thirties and forties she reared seven children. She was also "mum" to hundreds of stockmen, miners and drifters for whom her hotel was the best drinking hole on the track. Here, Mayse Young writes herself into Australian legend. You can get Mayse Young's autobiography from Mayse's cafe.

Mayse's Cafe on 38 Moule St is open daily for breakfast and lunch until 3pm. You can get more information through phone number (08) 8976 1241.
