Good food and great prices

We enjoyed a good range of tasty food at reasonable prices. There is nothing spectacular about the food, but it is simple, wholesome food that tastes great !

Had breakfast here, they have a few different sets and the portion size is ok (not so much that you can't finish and have to waste it). Service is friendly and reasonably fast. Afterwards we went browsing in the hat shop next door.

Right next door to the Hattery on Katoomba st Katoomba. The Hatters cafe ticks the boxes for me. Comfortable and welcoming, clean and reasonably priced. The big breakfast was $20 and was just right for the two of us. The portraits of local identities were a nice touch and a credit to the photographer. The staff were delightful and rotated... More

We ordered a big brekkie and everything on the plate was nice aside from the potato hash...basically these were tiny roast/fried potatoes but they seemed reheated or twice fried, not sure - bit they lacked actual potato on the inside. No amount of salt could improve these (and that's saying something since salt generally makes everything better haha). Freshly squeezed... More

We came in for lunch and there were only two other couples dining in at the time. The waitress came straight over to take our order and we had barely opened the menus. We asked for some more time and when she came back the second time we asked for the soup, at which point she hurried away without even... More

Meal was good, but they could not get the coffee order right. Asked for large latte in mug - received small in glass. Coffees took a long time to come out. We were offered replacement but did not accept. We were even asked if we wanted water and said yes but this never arrived. Very poor customer service.

My partner and I stumbled upon this place for lunch today, and absolutely loved it! I had the Twisted Prawns and my partner had the Smoked Chicken Risotto... Both of which were fantastic. Very friendly staff who genuinely looked like they enjoyed their job. Definitely recommend this one!

One of the many good cafes along Katoomba St( the main drag) , this cafe serves excellent coffee and tasty and well priced breakfast meals. Also open for lunch and dinner and licenced, we only went there for breakfast and were very satisfied with quality of food and service.

This place was somewhat shambolic but in a thoroughly enjoyable way, the staff were pleasant and good humoured and one got the impression that they knew they were out of control but were enjoying it none the less. The food was very good cafe fare and I would eat there for lunch or breakfast but probably not dinner given the... More
