The cafe seemed like it was family owned and run, which meant it was a laid back atmosphere - however the food is average. The chicken parmigiana is bland, tasteless and looked like it came from a packet. But the food is cheap and you get what you pay for!

A decent enough place with friendly staff, foods good and with a shortage of places with wifi this is a welcome bonus

Service simply most appalling, we never had a chance to taste the food as the waitress did her best to ignore us as she was standing doing nothing, we called her, having used my best smile and a polite"excuse me we are ready to order" we got told off rather nastily for jumping the queue....then she went back behind the...

First time I've done it, but after sitting unattended for 25 minutes and watching others who arrived after us get served and fed, we gave up and walked out. Could hardly be that we were missed in the crowd, there were only 2 other couples there. not even so much as a coffee order tended to. Solemn vow to never... More

I enjoyed my lunch here with my partner. Service was slow but adequate. Food and atmosphere were good. Free WiFi useful.

Service was OK. Breakfast was good. The overall appearance of the place was somewhat dated and could do with a facelift.

You're a bit spoiled for choice in Katoomba for small cafe/restaurants. This one ticked all of the boxes for us - delightful food, fresh, nicely presented and good sized portions, for very reasonable price. Live music was a nice touch - mellow and not too intrusive for conversation. The service was wonderful, we felt genuinely welcomed.

This little cafe was bustling with trade even though it was a public holiday. It is a basic, no-fuss cafe that serves good food for breakfast at a decent price. Whilst the service level may be lacking to some regard (they seemed to be a touch under-staffed), they operate on what I would describe as ruthless German efficiency - their... More

Had all day breakfast which consisted of eggs, burnt bacon and doughy bread. Waitress was rude and then it was 40 minutes before we received our simple fare. My husband had time to go out and move his car and come back. Atmosphere is basic, food is less than ordinary. Go elsewhere !

We stopped in here for dinner on a Sunday night as there were very few other places open. The food was quite ordinary - we all had a pasta of some kind which was homemade (which was nice) but wasn't of a great standard. That did leave room for cake though, so we got stuck into that instead. It's a... More
