Mixed Experience

We stopped here twice within a week. The first time the barista served us great coffee so we went back. The next time it was very ordinary. The food is home cooked and fresh. Even out the skills of the baristas and this would be a winner.

Stopped for lunch on the day the roads were closed due to snow (17/07/15) and had the best beef burger. The place was packed and there was a bit of a wait but it was worth it. Had to go back to the mountains the following Friday (24/07/15) and ordered the same burger. I should have known something was amiss... More

Great spot at the bottom of Leura mall - large tables if you have a big group but also a few smaller tables if you're heading there solo or with your significant other. Great selection of pastries and treats and they make an awesome mocha!

Because the roads were closed due to the snow fall, a lot of businesses were closed in Leura. This was a god send as it was open and busy. The pumpkin soup was delishious as well as the fish and chips. Other good cafe food served with a smile. Good for lunch.

We have been here before and had a fantastic lunch. I'm sad to say our experience this time wasn't anywhere near as good. We waited nearly 30 minutes for our coffees and nearly a hour for 3 banana breads and an Eggs Benedict. To be fair they did say there was a 20 minute wait for food. When the food... More

I have stopped here a couple of times now on the way to our office in Katoomba. Very friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere and a pot-belly stove to keep you nice and warm on a chilly morning. One time for breakfast I had the Eggs Benedict - one of my favourite breakfast dishes - and on this occasion it was the... More

Great for a quick fix, particularly for tourists who are visiting Leura for a short while. Had a fish dish (fish burger or something like that?) It was good and quite a larger portion too

About half an hour later he started to fell unwell and by the time we arrived at our hotel in Mudgee he was not... More

Great cafe in a quaint little village. The hot chocolate was amazing and much needed in the temperatures! Also enjoyed a delicious Red Velvet cupcake. Heaven!
