Delicious and quick food. Coffee and sweets too. We had a ham on focaccia that was toasted to perfection and still warm when we ate it at the park. The staff is fast and very friendly. The coffee was perfectly made as well. Lots of people eating in as well. So many choices, vegetarian and gluten free. Check it out!

We used to love this place years ago. This morning we went for breakfast with the young kids. Despite knowing the meals were for kids, black pepper was put all over the kids meals before leaving the kitchen. The poached eggs were all overdone and had no run in the yolk at all. Bacon was dry and overcooked. At least... More

I cannot fault the pie and pastries that we had, nor the efficient way in which we were served, and the choices certainly appeared to be home made, if microwaved, and fairly tasty. Staff were efficient but not friendly, which was so like most Australians that we met, but I suppose that they know that most people are on day... More

Had breakfast twice during our stay in the Blue Mountains. Food good, service friendly and not too expensive. Brilliant pot of tea. An added bonus is excellent free WiFi.

We went to Loaves & Dishes three or four times and never had the kind of experience we got just up the road at the Red Door Cafe. While not being able to comment on the non-vegetarian range of food and acknowledging on the positive side that Loaves & Dishes offers quite a few vegetarian dishes, the quality of this... More

Leura on Saturdays is very crowded. We found a table amongst the bus-loads of coach travellers who were taken care of quickly and efficiently. Our meals were good quality, hot and tasty. Service is quick - it needs to be, considering much of their business is from tour buses. Good quality food in an open, cafeteria style venue.

We went to Afternoon Tea one day and went back for Breakfast one Morning! Yum Yum! There were 6 of us and we had a large table so we could spread out and be comfortable! We had a second Capachino which was one of the best we have ever had in a Cafe!

My family and I recently visited as part of a blue mountain tour. The vegetable frittata was both tasty and filling. Other family members enjoyed the spaghetti bolognese and we all liked the brownie for dessert.

Was really disappointed. We were enticed by the "gluten free" advertisement so decided to have breakfast here. Not that many gluten free options were available- it took too long to be served breakfast- and when it came it was cold. My husband has gluten free toast that was not toasted enough ans so the tomatoes on top made it soggy... More

This was our first stop on the way to the Blue Mountains our tour guide recommended this for the "banana bread" which he said was the best in Australia. Service was quick coffee good and banana bread best ever tasted, 2 slices per portion served warm with butter on the side. Other food choices looked tempting & huge. Well worth... More
