Had a varied selection from the menu. Average quality & average service. AirCon wasn't on- stifling for many. Pricing was "ok" but I use that term liberally. Would try another venue.

On New Year's Day we decided to visit Leura on our way to the 3 sisters we decided to have our lunch. Meals were horrible bland and substandard. Blue mountains area is known for its good food and resistance to poorly prepared fast food like McDonald's KFC. But honestly I would gladly have a cheese burger than ordering here. Secondly... More

Drove for 3 hrs to see this place relatively busy and ordered cabinet food that got heated and was bland & ordinary. My choice - the owner's grandmother's 100 yr old recipe was disappointing - I'm sure they had salt in those days! It's nearly NY's Eve and places around Sydney seem to be short staffed . . .

We had lunch during a tour at this place and were pleasantly surprised. The food was wonderful, the staff attentive and efficient, and the manager friendly and engaging. It's nothing fantastic but good, solid, dependable food that tastes good. It was a quaint, cute little place with a lot of character that we would return to if in the area... More

Great food, friendly and the owner tells people to call in for breakfast if the lights are on. I often call in there and enjoy a coffee at the street table before leaving for my photography start point. Last week it was cool with a gentle breeze blowing and nobody around but me. Love the place.

Popped in for a coffee. A terrible flat white. Accepted an offer for another one, still terrible. Why can't Australians make a good coffee anymore? We used to be well known for our coffee making skills. The milk is so supposed to be silky, not like an instant with a bit of crema on top and certainly not boiling hot.... More

I went there with my husband on an organised trip. We had a choice of 5 dishes which sounded good but upon arrival to my mind they were all ghastly. Overcooked, stodgy and un appetising can't remember when I had a worst meal. The waitress was kindness its self shame about the food.

The staff obviously thought they hadn't insulted me enough when they huffed and puffed at me for not knowing where the menus were, so they served me a bitter flat white and a rubbery bowl of pasta, both overpriced, just to make sure I knew I wasn't welcome there. Don't worry guys, I won't be coming back.

We generally visit a couple of times a year and always drop in for the French chocolate... It no longer exists on the menu.. Now it feels like the bad cafe in the shopping centre, the scones tasted like cake... The coffee bitter... There is no service and plastic chairs now... Did it change hands or something.... Will not be... More

This has got to be one of the worst cafes I have ever been to - and one I will never go back to! My coffee was weak and the cup was dirty. We ordered a chicken wrap to share (it was almost $15 - which is daylight robbery) the wrap was inedible. The chicken looked like lamb - it... More
