Coffee and food is fabulous at this cafe. Service is great. The pizzas served on Friday at lunch are amazing, best had in a long time.

Go on a Friday for the fantastic woodfired pizzas! All other days have an equally delicious cafe menu, featuring lots of local and free range produce. Great coffee. I go back every time I'm in Armidale.

This is clearly the 'it' cafe in Armidale, and would not be out of place in Sydney or Melbourne. That said, it also has that friendly country vibe too, and superb coffee.

Fabulous place, where the coffee is awesome....the pastrys and bread are made fresh everyday, try the Portugese tarts, crispy croissants, berry friands ....yummy yummy! The meals are interesting, always using fresh local produce. It's often busy, sometimes hard to get a seat, but a bit of patience will reward you!

I was looking for something to eat, and stumbled upon this place, great coffee and delicious home made pies. A nice discovery, with friendly staff too.

But was so very disappointed with EVERYTHING!!!!! Staff took their time greeting and acknowledging us. The lady came over to take our order. She was rude, blunt, uninterested... More

The Gold Fish Bowl has been hyped by all and sundry as a must do, so when myself and partner met there for lunch last week it was a highly anticipated visit. We arrived and took a seat outside, it took about 10 minutes for a waiter to arrive at our table and we were greeted with a complimentary bottle... More
