Nice place

I only had a coffee in this place, but it was good coffee and was served by a very pleasant girl. A rather old fashioned place but it was clean and after coffee you can go into the hattery through the arch and look at all the head wear there.

Good coffee and excellent fresh juice. Prices in general are high however the food is good. Service was good. Tables need to be cleaned faster. Bathrooms are showing their age.

Had a pretty good pasta dinner here the night before a long race. The food was good although I think they could have done with having another staff member on to keep up as it got busier. Not overly expensive, so worth a visit.

My Family had Mothers' Day Breakfast at the Hatters Café Katoomba - May 2015. We booked a table during week, then on arrival asked if it would be possible to change our table to one nearer the deliciously warm fire. Busy morning for her in the café - she moved us and tables around so that we could sit near... More

Beautiful café with delicious food!! I dined here before meeting family and I felt that the staff were so understanding and patient with my dietary requirements. The food was fresh and properly made and presented beautifully. I only hope that my local café can produce lunch as good as this place!

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
