Beautiful Coffee, Delicious Food.

Had a lovely Sunday breakfast at Ginger Baker on our way to Mount Hotham for a week on the snow. We were greeted with friendly and efficient service and started with two cappuccinos and ordered the corn cakes and the croque-monsieur both were very delicious and generously portioned. I enjoyed the... read more

We sat by the fireplace and were toasty warm. Great food, really enjoyed the lentils with walnuts. Very reasonably priced, well worth a visit

Warm and welcoming for homo sapien and dogs as well. Lovely menu - daring to do things a little differently. Thanks for your lovely hospitality to the pretty lady who I think owns Ginger Baker.... see you next time we are in Bright. The lady with the Rhodesian Ridgeback and little cheeky cavalier.

This quaint little restaurant, offers both the discerning culinary expert or casual diner, with some of the most beautiful food selections I have ever experienced! Customer service and personal attention to detail is superb. The Winter ambience, with roaring open log fires, only serves to enhance the dining experience.

There are a number of good cafes in Bright but we loved this one most because the baked muffins and breads are fresh and delicious. Coffees do not disappoint either. It is also one of the more spacious cafes which both indoors and outdoors seating available. I would come back again next time I'm in Bright.

My family and I enjoyed lunch here earlier this week. We had a number of shared plates of the most yummiest comfort food we have ever enjoyed, including meatballs, slow cooked duck and potatoes....all the time being kept very warm by the number of open fire pits.

I have had coffee and breakfast here on several occasions when staying at Bright and both the food and coffee have always been great. I especially love the pancakes. In winter they close off the outdoor area and have two wood firs for warmth. In summer the big oak trees out the back provide a lush cooling coverage.

This little cafe is situated by the Ovens River in Bright and is filled with charm and ambiance. The owners and staff are incredibly engaging and passionate about their cafe and the area. They make you feel at home and like one of the family as soon as you walk in. The open log fires keep everybody snug and warm... More
