Quirky place

Friendly staff, really tasty food and good choice on the menu. The good is very fresh and healthy options exist. Free wifi too. Good lunchtime choice

I live local and used to stop here a for coffee. It was nothing special. My problem was the staff. Without a doubt - ALWAYS rude and lacking in basic customer service skills.

Extremely slow and poor service. In a group of friends two of our meals were forgotten and not prepared. Therefore we couldn't all dine together. We weren't offered a refund or a drink while we waited for our meals to be cooked. To top off the forgettable experience- when my friend went to pay for her and husband's meals they... More

We had the best breakfast ever here! Highly recommend the homemade muesli, it was delicious and filled me up all day! The toast was nice and thick. Beautifully presented. Staff were friendly. Colouring activities for kids. Free wifi. What's not to like? Oh yeah... The toilets. Outside 'dunny'' style, smelled bad, looked bad. We decided to hold it and went... More

The service was very poor. The waitress ignored us when we tried to pay and we were the only ones in the cafe. The food was ordinary

We stopped by Cafe Zuppa for breakfast after walking up Katoomba street looking for somewhere that offered all day breakfast with a range of options and Zuppa ticked that box for us. The inside of the cafe is fairly tired so a facelift would be great, that said, many of the Katoomba cafes have a similar look going on so... More

The food was good but the staff are very very rude. It's a holiday weekend and they are busy, but no excuse for the rudeness

spare yourself grief and frustration and skip Zuppa. The food was terrible and the service was worse. I ordered a kangaroo burger and it can rare. I told the waitress that I couldn't chew through the raw meat and asked her to take it back to the kitchen to be cooked a bit more. She insisted that, "That's the way... More
