So I used to love the Cafe here but when I went this week lunch was pretty average for the four of us and expensive. I had for $13.50 a toasted sandwich with cheese, tomato and ham, no salad, no garnish, no thick bread, just a plain toasted sandwich you make at home. Coffee and cake seemed normal price and...

We visited for lunch and to view the gallery on a Friday. I had booked which was recommended and we had a great table on the verandah which overlooked the river, valley and Mt Warning. While this is a busy place the service was friendly and helpful and as we decided to move to another table this was accommodated with... More

The views from this restaurant overlooking Mt. Warning are beautiful. Service was good, but slow, but it was a Sunday and they were busy. The range was reasonable, but truly cafe style food. We had a beef burger and flathead fillets, each one $22 each. Bottle of cider was $9. The good was nice and hot and tasty. Given the... More

We had lunch here on our visit to the gallery. Food was really good but I thought a bit expensive, but they do have a captive audience as there's no where else in the vicinity to eat.

Hi Lesley B Thank you for your review. We're delighted to hear you enjoyed our food. Our pricing reflects the quality of the fresh, local and organic produce we use in our dishes and the labour of our staff who prepare meals fresh to order. Sometimes this means our prices are slightly higher than you might pay elsewhere, but we... More

We enjoyed the spectacular views from this funky little cafe but again found the cappuccinos a little too luke warm.

When serving coffee, we typically heat the milk to between 65 and 70°C, which is the optimal temperature for flavour, without burning the milk. If you prefer a hotter coffee, please don't hesitate to ask and our... More

This is a delightful spot for a light lunch. The deck overlooks the lush green river valleys of northern New South Wales with Mt Warning dominating. Food was good without being great.

The indoor extension has now made the cafe quite spacious, and the outdoor balcony for some sunshine. The view is beautiful and tranquil. Good meal selection as with the desert and light cake options. Beautifully presented and range of beverages on offering.

Excellent location with magnificent views. Food is still good, but not as good as previous owners. New staff ok only.
