We visited Cooma for five days and had big, generous delicious country style breakfasts at the Tourist Café every morning. Great bacon, eggs, breakfast rolls, eggs Benedict, tea, coffee and toast. Good service too. We'll be back!

We have stopped here for dinners regularly on the way to the snow, ordered both take away and eaten in. The children enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and friendly service of the waiter. A great selection on the blackboard. We ordered steak sandwiches and fish and chips. The food was fresh and presented beautifully to us. The cafe seemed to have... More

New toilets have been installed, the old arrangement was a bit average. Menu is fairly extensive for a more traditional country cafe. I can't understand what others are complaining about... More

I have eaten here multiple times and when I walked in tonight I noted the sign 'under new management'. I think I just received the WORST SERVICE of my life. The waitress got my mothers order wrong and then argued with her about it, then yelled YOU DID ORDER THAT. what a joke. We walked out and went to the... More
