This is a small Cafe, but highly recommended. We had a fabulous Brunch for Two and it has freshly ground coffee and thus the best Coffee we had in the two weeks we were in Australia. We highly recommend this wonderful small, cozy and intimate cafe. And it has a brandnew installed toilet which most cafes in the area do not have.

Great food

Great food for lunch at Graze. Tasty and diverse menu. Spacious and private, so that you can talk without straining to hear or being heard by others.

Blue Hour used to be my favourite coffee spot in Katoomba. Why? Atmosphere (the Afghan cushions), the coffee (excellent) and the manager....not any more. The place seems to have changed hands, the name has changed, the staff has changed, the coffee is average and the 'ambiance' had disappeared (stark purple instead of middle-eastern vibe). Won't be going back.

Had a very tasty breakfast with good coffee and herbal tea. I had the pancakes with bananas whilst my wife had the smoked salmon with poached eggs. We both enjoyed the atmosphere in this small cafe

This was one of the few cafés open on the main road of Katoomba at 9am on a Sunday. We came here for breakfast. The cafe had a nice atmosphere and the service was good. The menu selection was appealing and the food was reasonably priced and on the cheaper side for the places we saw in the area. The... More

We stopped at Blue Hour for a late lunch after hiking in the Blue mountains. Its a cute cafe with tasty small plates and a decent wine selection. The staff was friendly and I'll return next time I'm in Australia.

A cold, drizzly Sunday morning found hubby and I in the Blue Hour for breakfast. As locals, we go past here all the time but we're always rushing around and haven't made time to stop. I'm so glad that today we did! We both enjoyed bacon and eggs (him poached, me scrambled) with toast (him sourdough, me rye) and he... More

I had a great breakfast there with a plate of bacon and eggs served with sour dough toasts, accompanied by a big pot of tea; all for $10. The service was very good and the proprietress very courteous and professional. The menu looked interesting together with other items. I will make a return visit soon.

My daughter is too young for pubs so does the cafe crawl instead. We are from nsw central coast so a bit starved for good cafes with quality service. On the contrary the Blue Mountains climate allows the locals to be spoilt for choice. The food was really good here and was very reasonably priced. But service for us will... More
