Penny School Gallery & Cafe information
Situated in a lovely heritage building tucked away from busy Main St, this light-filled cafe-restaurant features changing exhibitions of well-known local and national artists, including indigenous art. It’s a great spot for coffee but the Mod Oz menu of pasta, smoked trout and Daylesford venison is hard to beat. There’s free live music on Sunday afternoon and games of petanque outside. You’ll need to book ahead for dinner.
