Went to Katoomba for the Chocolate Festival and headed into the Hatter's Cafe. Table Service inside and out. Terrific menu, great coffee and the best hot dark chocolate to celebrate the festival. Waitress was friendly. The shop was clean and service prompt. Prices terrific. Will head back for lunch... read more

My Partner and I visited this morning for breakfast with two friends. The cafe wasn't overly busy, we ordered 3 big breakfasts and one mushrooms with eggs on toast. After about 40 minutes we asked how the long breakfast would be. I was advised it was ready. 5 mins later our food arrived. Poached eggs were hard, there were no... More

With so many choices of cafe's in Katoomba you'd think the competition for customers would improve the standard but not so here. The service was pleasant but slow. The coffee & tea came out first & was stone cold. Ages later our breakfast came & it was cold & very average. Won't be going there again.

We visited this Café last Saturday morning for breakfast. I had Canadian breakfast and my husband had the big breakfast. Both meals were quite large servings and delicious. We will be going back!

The big breakfast is huge and the food is very good. The service is exceptional. When we were there the cafe was full and the staff were rushed off their feet, yet they remained friendly and professional.

Staff were in good spirits on a very busy Saturday afternoon during the winter magic festival. Very friendly, gave good suggestions and the pasta was delicious!

Dined here for breakfast over the weekend and the food was ok. Had the Canadian Breakfast which consisted of French Toast and Bacon and whilst the bacon tasted great, the French Toast tasted like plain toast with no mixture. The coffee was good although a little cold. My partner ate the Big Breakfast and said it was average. The location... More
