Went here to warm up after walking around on a very chilly day in the Blue Mountains. Cafe had a great wood fire burning and after ordering with the wait staff, settled back to enjoy a hearty soup and nice coffee.

Regulars at the Wattle Cafe, my wife and I are here most weekends. I enjoy great Eggs Benedict whilst she usually has a Bacon and Egg roll, also has one of the best coffees in the mountains sourced from a local roaster. Generous serves and priced right, cannot recommend this place highly enough.

We stopped in for breakfast on a day trip up to Jenolan Caves. I had been there once a long time ago but thought we would give this a go. My partner and I both had the Farm Breakfast. Wow. It looked amazing, big generous serving and tasted just as good. I could barely finish mine and my partner couldn't... More

Group of five had lunch here. Fresh soup with toasted sourdough, and hot chocolate. Roaring fire made it cozy. Decent muffin. Friendly service.
