A service station to gives restaurants a run for their money
One afternoon we found ourselves in Coober Pedy with only 30 minutes spare as we set about a hurried afternoon with a tour booked into the Breakaways - I needed to get a quick lunch.
We popped into a cafe and the cafe owner advised us that the best lunch in the place was in the Shell service station.
Quite an extensive choice and the food is better than the signboard looks!
With a raised eyebrow, but no time to query this, we set off to find the aforementioned restaurant.
We were pleasantly surprised to find that everything they said was true; it was more like a bistro than a service station.
As you enter, you are met by a large signboard and it certainly feels a little like you are in a cafe section of a service station. However the girls were so kind and friendly, the food was prompt and home cooked and the servings generous.
In the eating area it feels a little like a bistro where the staff are friendly and attentive.
Bistro style dining area
The servings were generous, prices are reasonable and delivered efficiently.
All in all, a good place to stop for a quick meal and a good feed.
