Called in here for coffee and cake. There is seating inside, and footpath seating with umbrellas outside. Service was quick and the coffee was really good. The cakes are made on sight., I can thoroughly recommend the brownies. My daughter had an Oreo milkshake, which she loved and she does not... read more

I had the coffee here a few days ago and it's very good. I arrived with my girlfriend a bit too late for lunch but the menu looked really good and I wouldn't mind trying it out very soon. The prices were good. The staff were friendly and it's a nice laid back place to meet up with friends and... More

Had dinner at the Block Bar Cafe and completely took me by surprise. They have a new chef and a new menu to match and the food exceeds expectations. We ordered the Lamb Shanks - highly highly recommended, very generous portions and the quality is high! Seafood and Vegetarian specials caught our eye, and happy they did, we were very... More

Lovely breakfast at reasonable prices. Cafe is trendy and friendly. Children's corner with toys made breakfast even more enjoyable as my son was entertained. Went back here twice during visit to Yamba.

Cannot believe the other good reviews. Two of us went in for lunch. Only a dozen people in and 4 staff but forgot to make one of the drinks, food (toasted sandwiches) took 20 minutes to arrive and were greasy and unpleasant. Served with a small side salad but no cutlery and serviette under food so could not be used.... More

Amazing place for a backpackers, no wonder it's in the world's Top 10! Staff are terrific, nothing too much trouble, always seems to be at least one of the owners around to ensure nobody slackens off, an extra benefit is the number of attractive young backpackers around. Food's good, coffee's great, always entertaining.."""
