Surprisingly good cafe at the museum. Lovely cakes, coffee and lunches. Wi-Fi charge is $15 for one use only, so get all your downloading done at once - and it's limited.

We climbed Mount Gower during the day and wanted a nice, hearty meal to celebrate that night. We were thrilled with the beautiful roast lamb and pork dinners they made. The dessert and coffee was really yummy too!

After walking through the museum ( which gives great insight into the history of LHI) it has been really nice siting down and relaxing ( as you do at LHI). The staff have always been smiling and friendly. They have a nice assortment of... More

Yummo gluten free ham and cheese toasted sandwich with great coffee was an easy lunch option. The perfect way to finish a trip to the museum, especially on a rainy day.

A good choice for lunches and part of an excellent museum which is a "must-see" attraction on Lord Howe Island, with its historic, geological and marine biological displays.

We decided to have lunch with our 90 year old aunt & 83 year old mother. Nothing was a issue for the staff. My aunt & mother wanted a light snack, not being on the menu, they still made it for them. Our Burger & salmon foccacia was excellent, that good in fact we return. When people ask is it... More
