Not Quite the Same

Leura is a great destination and this was a place we ate breakfast (when we stayed in the village) and a few lunches over the years. Tried it again and have to say it is definitely not as good as it used to be. When we sat at the table near the window the gentleman already seated there told us... read more

The service was almost as cold the food. Food was overpriced for what we received. Very disappointed... the "beef" was cold and bland. $9 for a handful of chips...cold chips.

We thought we'd enjoy a pasta lunch and ordered the Armatriciana - what a disappointment! It was obviously microwaved as part of the food was very hot and part cold. There was hardly any sauce. Perhaps the cafe should delete the pasta dishes if they are just 'fast food'.

On a cold day - there are many in the mountains - one of the best places to go is Loaves and Dishs- they have a cracking fire and excellent coffee. It does get very busy with all of the tourist buses , so get in before the lunch time rush

Its disappointing to see a few horrible reviews for this place we had the best experience! The staff were beautiful, the breakkie was big and delicious and really well priced. The coffee was gorgeous. Those of you who expect more, go visit WA. Youll pay triple! Thanks guys we loved it will be back in the mornin for pancakes :)

We called in for coffee and breakfast on our way through Leura. We are regular visitors to Leura as we enjoy the area, however this is one establishment we would never return to. Food was dreadful, Decor was tacky and more suited for a holiday camp, service was non-existant and just overall an unpleasant experience.

Generous portions but they need to cut down as it creates wastage esp. with the chips (too many unnecessary carbs). Suggest they have small, medium, large options. This was the only place in leura we found had friendly staff.

Lunch for two with coffee was `$60. The food was slimy and bland (especially the famed moussaka - at $20!). One had to order and pay at the front counter - even the menus seemed grubby and tired. To their credit, the staff were upbeat and helpful.
