Went here for an easy lunch on a very hot day. Being from out of the area I was pleasantly surprised but the amazing views and the presentation of the Cafe. We were seated quickly and our orders taken in an acceptable amount of time. The staff were very lovely and professional. I had the home made pasta and it... More

Had a group of 36 for a 60th Surprise Birthday Party. We had an amazing night, everyone raved about the setting, scenery (we were witness to an amazing sunset) food and friendly, efficient staff. Very accommodating we left late. Organised our own musician and singer. It was an easy, relaxed totally enjoyable night.

Bowers Cafe is in a lovely country setting on the road between Taree and Wingham. Very popular with the locals due to the fresh food they serve and great coffee.

“You know, Mum, Harry says this is his favourite café anywhere. He means in the world.” So that’s the comment I was thrown from my daughter across the breakfast table at Bowers a few mornings ago, between her scooping up mouths full of spinach and cheese fritters. Harry is the boyfriend who wasn’t with us, and Harry has travelled the... More

Nice spot to sit relax and take in the country-side. Has a great selection of teas and coffee etc. The lunch menu is quite impressive with a broad selection of meals. The service is very good with staff being very friendly and helpful.

we arrived for a Breakfast get together with Family and Friends, we were early and seated at our table. Then we were asked if we would like a drink, we said that we would wait till our friends arrived, then 5 minutes later we were asked again a bit pushy I thought. When we had all arrived, we then ordered... More

Greeting and acknowledgement from staff and management when arriving and finding seating is a bit disappointing. Breakfast served was cold especially eggs is not great but if your looking for coffee and muffins/ scones perfect spot.nice views. Mains a bit overpriced

Went here for lunch today, Tuesday. Only 10 tables occupied but we arrived to no greeting and about 7 mins before waitress acknowledged us. Then once we had ordered it was 55 mins before the food arrived. It was very good food but the wait put us off this nicely situated cafe. Pity.

We came with a large group and the service was fantastic for what looked to be a very busy day for the staff. The food was great and was fresh and well presented. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Bowers has recently changed hands and, I must say, for the better. Everything on the lunch menu looked so appealing with several vegetarian options. I had the duck salad with pears and roasted capsicums which came with a delicious dressing. My partner had the salmon and spinach tart which he also said was delicious. The service staff were very friendly... More
