Stopped at the Gold Fish Bowl for lunch and immediately loved the style and attitude of the place. It was a buzzing cafe with a cosmopolitan arty attitude. We sat outside in the courtyard which felt like being in the back yard of a country house. Herbs and grape vines growing and mixed chairs with tables covered in colourful paint.... More

10 of us rode down to the Oxley Hwy from the GC - October long weekend. We spent our first night in Armidale. Two of our group had been through there a few months back and recommended we go here for breakfast. We did and we were not disappointed, the food is a little different but it is very very... More

If you like strong coffee and homemade pastries you can't go wrong. Rustic furniture adds to the ambiance. Draw the line on sitting on milk crates.

You need to experience it. A bit 'greenie' with organically produced ingredients overtly promoted, and the coffee is great. Topping it off, and demonstrating an Armidale trait, the service is super-friendly and fast except in peak coffee hours. It's always pretty busy and they bake their own beautiful, crusty breads.

Staff went to a lot of trouble to squeeze our group of four in on a busy Saturday morning. Food and coffee were excellent.

I went to this restaurant for a little drink, and it was so good! The hot chocolate had everything that a hot chocolate really needs!

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. Did not get the chance to eat here on this occasion, but it seems to be always packed - a very good sign - so fully intend to... More
