Meh

Busy cafe. Good food, but quite pricey. Not value for money. Definitely not a place if you have small children.

Hatters cafe in Katoomba is fast becoming our favorite place for breakfast in the Blue Mountains. Coffee is always good but the food is what's special about Hatters. We had the pesto mushrooms on toast and the potato Rosti and scrambled egg with a side of bacon. Both were excellent and plentiful. No leaving hungry here. Service was friendly and... More

There is a need for a make over at this cafe (as with many in the area) and once this happens I believe this cafe will be the hallmark for Katoomba's cafe scene. Upon entering I felt like I was back in the 80's. That all changed within moments. Such a warm and genuine greeting!! The menu presented options unseen... More

This looked like the majority of cafe's but was put on another level completely by the quality of the food... More

We enjoyed our meal here. The wait staff were attentive and even the chef shared his tips for a good rosti (I make my own). We didn't find it overly pricey and we were left replete, if not a little over-full after our mains . As mountains locals we have tried quite a few places and this is one where... More
