Stunning views

The cafe has such a peaceful relaxed feel. We sat on the balcony overlooking the river with Mt warning in the background. The food was very good and I really enjoyed looking around the gallery after Lunch. Would definaty go again

We visited the gallery on a Thursday afternoon, to find it busy with a couple of busloads. That was okay, we visited the gallery for an hour or so which is a fantastic display with many interesting permanent (Margaret Olley)and temporary exhibits. We then went to the café for a late lunch. The tart and salad we had was okay,... More

We were advised to try out the gallery and Cafe and chose to take a detour on the way to Byron Bay to have breakfast at the cafe. Our order was taken by a pleasant waitress on an iPad. When our drinks were brought out she had made couple of errors but that was fine. 30 minutes later, we were... More

We visited for lunch on a busy Friday, early March, and had made an advance booking for 2.30 as we were planning a late lunch. The initial service was a little casual, we were left at the table for ages, had to ask at the counter for menus and there was clearly clearing up being done with lots of noise... More

We dined at the Gallery Cafe whilst visiting the excellent reconstruction of Margaret Olley's house in the Tweed Regional Gallery. We had few expectations given the country location and being a cafe in a gallery but we were very impressed. The cafe is on a covered deck adjoining the gallery and has spectacular views across the Tweed valley. The menu... More

views from the cafe balcony can only be enjoyed by customers, ie those who BUY something from their overpriced menu. There's no table service, order at the counter when there's time to serve you, and brought to your table by a waitress who wants to know who's having the latte? It's a real pity this company runs the cafe.

The Gallery Cafe is located inside the beautifully architecturally designed Tweed Valley Art Gallery with inside and outside dining. The views over Murwillumbah and mountainside is glorious. The cafe is large, staff friendly and helpful. I had the lunch special of the day, Barra with avocado salsa with an ample serving of thick-cut chips. My husband has the vegie burger... More

We were staying in the area for a few days and visited the gallery around lunch time, so we decided to stay and eat - wow we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food.

The gallery cafe is a must go to location if you're in the area. As the views from the gallery location are breathtaking. If your lucky (can be very busy) try to sit outside to really take in the view. The menu has a number of food options and quality is good but ipricey. Our group had a nice meal,... More
