My partner and I were looking for somewhere to grab lunch in Katoomba during our stay. There were two free tables when we went in, one at the back near the kitchen that was clean, and one at the front window that had two milkshake cups on it. We asked if we could sit at the front and the waitress... More

The old days of The Blues Cafe and Zuppa... When Zuppa was owned by Gerad? It was the place to be, now sadly it's the place to avoid, poor service or maybe the staff think Im not trendy enough to be here! terrible food and incredibly unclean.... Better off eating out of the Toderellos scrap box than Zuppa! Sorry Zuppa

I had 25 minutes before my Explorer bus was due - and I was really needing some lunch. This cafe looked nice and offered all day breakfast. I asked how long for scrambled eggs and bacon - explaining my time restriction. No problem they said - will only take 6 minutes... I took a seat outside - opposite the beautiful... More

Visited this cafe for a late breakfast on a Sunday morning. Ordered a meat lovers all day breakfast and poached eggs on toast. Both were simple meals, just as described on the menu, but both were perfectly cooked and most enjoyable. Coffee was terrific. Freshly squeezed apple juice was tasty but unfortunately almost half the glass was sediment and proved... More

Quite possibly the worst meal I've had in recent memory. Service was poor - abrupt waitress with glasses made us feel scared to ask a question. She was rude to several other customers while we were there. Ordered the bacon and lentil soup, which had the texture and consistency of bile, and was made with generous amounts of pure bacon...

$16 for Birds Eye out if the box whiting that wasn't cooked properly. Lunches were expensive and not very good value for money.

We came here on a week night just to eat in what seemed like a cosy place and a fairly okay menu. We waited about 20 minutes until the waiter came and got our order and a while longer after the food came. I had the spaghetti bolognaise which is a very easy dish to cook the pasta came out... More

Came here for breakfast and was very happy with the price of food and its quality. However there were a few little things that stopped me putting 4*. While the service was very friendly, our drinks came out quite a bit after our food and we weren't given all the cutlery we needed. Also while the raisin toast was really... More

Food and service were good. But it took almost an hour to get our meals. We were only visiting for the day, so it really ate into our time here.

My wife and I stopped in here upon arrival in katoomba before boarding the explorer bus. We had planned a long day of hiking and the meat lovers all day breakfast served at cafe zuppa kept us going all day long. It was fantastic and actually was a highlight of our great day in the blue mountains. We definitely recommend... More
