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

What a great cafe, tucked away behind clear blinds and with the open fires burning warmly, it's a great place to people watch. The share plates are tasty and leave you wanting to try every one they have on offer, beautiful food at great prices, highly recommend

This was probably a middle of the road experience for us. Lovely food, lovely setting on a cold winters morning, but the service was a bit abrupt and there was a struggle with wait times when tables filled up. Great food, but I'm not entirely sure about value for rmoney..

If you're looking for a pretentious place to eat in Bright, you've found it! My partner and I came in at about 3pm to make a reservation for the evening. After being shown the menus and told to come past after 6pm to secure 'your table' as they do not take bookings, we were left hungry and disappointed to find... More
