 “An oasis in a culinary desert” 4 of 5 stars Reviewed 20 May 2015 “This cafe is now known as Kerry's Cafe (96 Barkly Street), and proved a blessing when we trudged up the main street of Ararat one cold afternoon looking for something half decent to eat. This cafe had a great range of freshly cooked food, with gluten-free options for my wife.” Click here for Kerry’s Cafe FB.
