Great place for breakfast

My partner and I have visited Bright twice in the past 12 months and have stopped in at Ginger Baker both times as it is in a very picturesque location by the river. Last year, we stopped in for some coffee and a hot chocolate and loved the outdoor area at the front. This area is covered in with... read more

We were drawn to this cafe because of the funky street front, but the best was an unexpected surprise. Inside, warm, cosy, comfortable, great food, coffee and service. But outside ... I almost don't want to spoil the surprise ... but think 'park', 'trees', 'river view' and great acoustics as the brewery next door kindly shares the live music... Definitely... More

Fantastic coffee on my morning walk. Looking forward to returning for a meal. Pet friendly is a bonus. Prompt friendly service and beautiful location.

Lovely atmosphere and very good food. Portions were smallish but very tasty: duck rillettes, pork belly, sticky chicken wings and apple, blue cheese and roasted walnut salad all complemented each other beautifully. Would happily come back

We regularly stay in Bright and have eaten at most cafes. Ginger Baker is by far the best. Great quality produce, glam quirky environment. Can only see growth for this special place. See u in June. Also exceptionally dog friendly with yummy doggy treats on the menu. Janine

Beautiful substantial breakfasts both days we came. Corn fritters and two poached eggs the first day, eggs perfectly runny, fritters had lots of corn. Avocado, feta & mint smash with two poached eggs the next day, just delicious. Next time we are in Bright we will return for lunch or dinner to Ginger Baker

This is a seriously cute restaurant with lots of ambiance & charm. The service was very good and the tapas selection was also solid. It offers a good mix of polished yet relaxed dining; with a neo vintage-esque fit out & decor. Stand outs were the pork belly and lamb cutlets with chimichurri. Desserts sounded great in theory but were... More

Yes the setup is a bit rugged but the service, food & outlook are excellent. On a cool day we were able to sit near one of the nice warm fires & indulge ourselves with good tappas from a very interesting menu. Our waitress was so welcoming -- we half expected her to join us for coffee. On a good... More

Ginger Baker has a unique range of food great for couples or family to share, relax and spend some time enjoying a wine with the tasty dishes. the location is perfect in winter or summer. its next to the ovens river and has plenty of outside space to watch the activities in the park. Coffee is top notch
