For a cafe that lives on the business of tourists and travelers, not accepting EFTPOS and credit cards is a deteriment. The food was tasty, but the staff ranged from uncommunicative to surly.

No change since my last review in Nov 2013, still great and you will love it if you are after a nice old Milk Bar. Say hi to the fat old half blind orange cat often asleep on the hot tin roof out the back, he is very friendly and I generally do not have much time for cats.

Catering to the public since 1902, we chose the Niagara in historic Gundagai firstly because it reminded us of cafes of our childhood in the (19)40s and 50s. A visit to the washroom (Ladies') down a rickety iron outdoor staircase is part of the experience. The Ladies' room is ancient, but perfectly clean and colourfully tiled. We were there for... More

This place has so much potential but it needs to be taken in hand. Staff seemed pretty miserable, food was just average, but my daughter got food poisoning and was up half the night vomiting. Needless to say, we won't be back.

Visiting the Niagara Café is like stepping back in time - the only thing missing was a juke box!. The service however is modern but to sit in old fashioned booths and to spend time looking at the significant history of the property in photographs was great fun. High quality coffee!

The food was good but the service was sadly lacking. There was no communication between the two and, on this occasion, it resulted in a lack of understanding. Such a shame as the cafe has a great ambience and a fabulous history but the experience left a sour taste.

We wandered in to this place for a coffee after a long drive and were struck by the amount of memorabilia on the walls. Some of it goes back to a visit by John Curtin and a few other political luminaries. The owners have interests in horse racing and by the looks have had considerable success. Oh and yes the... More

Stopped in Gundagi looking for something to eat and found this place. I have to say the "Super Burger" is great. Extremly tasty and I think ill find my self stopping in next time I make the Melb to Syd trip.

Brilliant breakfast, the service was exceptional, a very historic cafe, with lots of memorabilia on the wall, a must visit if you are in the area.
