Great breakfast

I've been here for quite a few visits. And have never been disappointed. They have a good selection of food and great smoothies and juices. I've only ever had their breakfast menu, but I definitely have no complaints. The staff are very friendly and with a nice outdoor setting, it's got a great... read more

The yummiest eggs be edict for brunch I have ever had. Great selection on menu including the most delicious looking smoothies - I sampled a banoffe (caramel and banana) and it was divine. The rocky road looked delicious. Don't miss a meal here if you are in Bathurst. Worth a visit.

I must start off by saying that the staff at Venue were very friendly and the service was excellent – well done to the waitstaff team. It's a shame that the same can't be said for the food. While the range of options was agreeable for a cafe of their calibre, the quality of my sandwich was almost less than what... More

My favourite place in Bathurst to have a coffee and a meal. Staff are wonderful and attentive. Order at the counter and choose from the extensive menu on the board. Cafe is getting a bit tired and overdue for a revamp. But the friendliness of the staff makes up for it. Food is great and plenty of it. Coffee can... More

This is an excellent cafe for breakfast (not tried lunch yet!) Choices are varied but I never go past the Bircher Meusli. Rest of the family have tried other items and all rate it highly.

I decided to try this place again recently with the family. Once again a very poor meal. Now the staff are very polite however the food and seating layout is bad. Sadly I will not try it a third time. Do not eat the food or drink the coffee.

Gave this place another crack and once again very disappointed . Went for breakky hoping it had improved in last 5 months but unfortunately it hadn't, its a shame cause location and staff are fantastic but the food horrible. Coffee not much better but nice atmosphere. Most of the cushioned seating needs replacing . Can be uncomfortable at times.
