Breakfast in Leura

After a lovely bush walk to the Leura Cascades we stopped to have breakfast at this spot. We had the light breakfast, poached egg, one slice of sourdough, grilled bacon and tomato. It was nice, nothing out of the ordinary. My coffee was hot as I had requested but very bland and smothered in... read more

A very busy day but the service was good. The fries were very tasty. The lamb burger was full of salad leaf and the lamb patty was dry.

Had a quick breakfast here, before travelling. It's busy, pricey and the food is average. Was charged $5 for a large coffee that was lukewarm. The menu is bare, little Vegetarian options aside from toast. There are better places in Leura.

We ate breakfast at the "Loaves" yesterday morning. The food and service was just great. The coffee is also good quality which really made me happy.

We stopped by here on our tour bus and we had the banana bread and hot chocolate and it was really good. I tired their brownie and it was out of this world. Highly recommend this cafe.

Had the bannana bread at Loaves & Dishes in Leura. It is absolutedly the best bannana bread I have had. And that is saying something since my mother was an exceptional cook. And one of her specialties was bannana bread.

Great value for money. Good menu, great big breakfast. Use it often for my clients. Open very early, xhef told me if the lights are on go inside and I do. Very welcoming and great coffee. No frills just good honest food.

Other locals had told me not to go in there but I was desperate for a coffee that day. It reminded me of queuing up for school dinners. After I had ordered I was directed to where I had to stand to wait. While I was waiting for my below average coffee, I did noticed they seemed to have cornered... More
