A real surprise!

While driving through this region we accidentally stumbled on this cafe, pulled up out the front and wondered what we would find inside! We were hungry and it was almost too late for lunch, but we would've been happy with anything. To our delight, the food and hot drinks were delicious, great sized... read more

Last Sunday, we made one of our numerous visits to SRC and it was a delight, as usual, to sit on the deck and listen to unobtrusive music in the background from the band, while we ate lunch. The location is great, because it involves a pleasant drive from either direction, through beautiful countryside. The food was delicious as usual... More

This used to be a place that i would drive a long way for. Sadly, that seems to have changed. The Italian Breakfast? at $15 seemed like a nice option. Drinks? Sure. A pot of chai with honey (This is the Tweed Valley after all) After being reassured the pesto was house made I requested an add on of eggs... More

We have been to the SRC many times and have always found the food creative and tasty. The staff are consistently cheerful and provide great service. The cafe is among the best in the area. Don't drive past without stopping!!

Went to this out of the way cafe that has a superb brekkie menu. I dont think that I have ever tasted a better bacon and eggs brekkie. One catch though, first time I went there, there were no dogs to be seen in the area and no dog bowl sitting on the entrance to the cafe. But last time... More

We regularly travel between Kyogle and Gold Coast and this little pit stop is our destination of choice. Great location, great coffee, and consistently good, filling wholesome food. They tick all the boxes for me. Price, value, delicious. Free filtered water and wifi make it right for us.

Out on a wet Saturday drive stopped at Sphinx Rock café for a late lunch. We both ordered burgers and they were delicious. Very large meal and we were so glad we chose to stop at this café, even though it was pouring rain we sat in the undercover outdoor area and remained dry. If you are in the are... More

Having eaten at many of the cafes in and around the Tweed, I consider the food and atmosphere of this cafe, to one of the best around. Chef Jon Squires makes the most delicious meals. On a Sunday you are entertained by some of the areas best musicians and the atmosphere of friendly locals is heartwarming.

Finding this cafe was the best thing about an impromptu road trip. The staff were so ply fantastic... The food delicious and the setting a wonderful shady oasis. There is the option of sitting inside or out. I had the kangaroo burger .... Delicious...my friend salmon equally delicious. Amazing fresh salad in burger. Fresh juices made the way you want...
