We had the veggie nachos, garlic bread and some salad. Excellent food and the service was impeccable. I would happily drive 2 hours from Sydney to eat here again and experience black heathe.

Sat outside even though there was a lovely warm fire inside, I wanted to watch the trains and the traffic moving through this beautiful part of the world.

We have been there several times, the last being during the last weekend. The café is always busy when we stop in but we always seem to get a table. The food is always good, the staff pleasant and the service is within the expectations of a café. The log fire also adds to the ambience on the colder days.... More

Popped in for lunch after hiking parts of Katoomba NP. We were greeted by the owner (I think) and he kindly went through the menu with me re special dietary requirements which I really appreciated. My husband and I each had one of the daily specials and weren't disappointed and my coffee loving husband enjoyed their coffee too.

We regularly stop at Wattle Cafe on the way to Sydney. The coffee is always good as are the freshly squeezed juice. The restroom is very basic but clean, and staff attentive. They welcome all, and clearly attract many regulars. The food is modern cafe style, there is always something to choose. Good points: Coffee and fresh juice always good,... More

One of our favourite Blackheath Cafes. A cozy cafe with great food.The breakfasts are excellent..and even better rhe cafe has a cook who knows how to cook bacon properly. The breakfasts are very generous and delicious. The service is very prompt and not a long wait for your meal. Worth a visit.
