My wife and I were in Hogsback for the weekend two weeks ago and we're looking around for a place for breakfast the Saturday morning. We arrived a bit early at Butterfly's Bistro but were welcomed immediately. The meals were served quickly and were wonderful. Prices are good and real value for money. Sunday we awoke and started considering a... More

Food was good. Decor interesting. Service very good. Visit the art display at this venue. We loved the peaceful area and the 'hum' vibe in Hogsback. It appears that all inhabitants are away with the fairies. Butterfly Bistro is worth a visit for a light lunch or breakfast.

One thing about Butterfly's is that you know you will get get food, coffee and a great vibe - although the vibe changes daily. On an icy, wet spring morning we popped in after a walk in the Forrest for a late breakfast/ morning tea. The music was great, the food delicious, coffee strong, and the service friendly and with...

Delicous breakfast, lovely coffee, warm atmosphere and friendly service...exactly what we were looking for on a chilly Spring morning. If you're in Hogsback don't miss the opportunity to pop into the Butterfly Bistro! The red espresso ice tea was also yum!

Good coffee and tasty food. Presentation of food not great but tasty all the same. Lovely sitting under the trees for breakfast or lunch and tea.

Fresh healthy food! Lovely lawn to relax on and have our toddler play on. Friendly accommodating staff and the best home made iced tea ever. Very thick milkshakes too and amazing potato wedges.

We stayed in Hogsback for a week over the winter holidays to get a break from city life. We enjoyed a light lunch at the Bistro about midway through our stay. It really was a charming little place, with cosy pot belly stoves and bright decor - perfect to lighten up a winter's day.

Ample parking and welcoming atmosphere. Was recommended by locals and did not disappoint! Had the mushroom and jalepeno combo and thai chicken soup to start with . Their pizzas are delightful ( italiano and chicken supreme respectively!). Even though the restaurant was busy the service was still efficient. One of the better eateries in town.

Hogsback out of season can be a bit dead. Having been refused any service at The Edge we wandered back to town. The Butterfly"s Bistro is set back from the road by the information centre. Jumping out of the car a sign reads "Yes, we are open!" But in this town you never know. Zan spotted that one of our... More

We had dinner with 4 friends and had a variety of different starters, mains and desserts as for instance minestrone, garlic roll, curry, ravioli, lasagne and prego steak roll. We finished this excellent dinner with malva and cheesecake. All dishes were absolutely tasty and the service was very friendly. Bill was surprisingly low for 4 people with a 3 course... More
