As a regular visitor of the past few years we have tested this place from Coffee, Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Casual dining, easy food, and friendly atmsophere. Great to have the TV;s in the background. And the Lamb Cutlets are my favourite pub meal. It is comforting to know that no matter what time of day their doors are open.... More

The atmosphere and food are tops but you have to wait a little to get food. It is very good and is very busy most times. If you are after quick. No.

Upmarket for a youth hostel! We were passing through looking for a quick healthy meal and were pleasantly surprised. Great menu - good range of options. I reluctantly asked for a couple of alterations for the children and this was met with a courteous positive response. The food was delicious, served within 20 mins and prices around $15 for our...

This place has great coffee and we have tried several of the desserts which have been very nice. Many locals come here and it has a nice friendly atmosphere. A good place to relax in the morning.

Not just for travellers, the Block Bar and Cafe is also a very popular eatery for locals for breakfast lunch and dinner. The eggs Benedict are superb!

We're locals so we've been here often...and it's always good...and usually busy! The food is simple, but well prepared and well served (typically by young and eager backpackers from anywhere in the world) in a relaxed, but still a bit upmarket setting. The overall atmosphere is always fun, a bit of a buzz really...and for all ages.

Dined here with the family after finding other local venues booked out. Always a little cautious with order at the counter however was greeted with incredibly friendly staff. The order process was a breeze and selection on offer and specials available was surprising. Unfortunately one off our plates was a mixup between the salmon special and the regular but I... More

We had a few coffees here on our recent visit to Yamba and generally they were pretty good I must say on one of the days the coffee was so hot that it did not taste as good but overall they seem to make quite nice coffee!

Have dined here on several occasions, if only for the stuffed jalapeños, has never been outstanding but after my last experience I will NEVER be returning! Staff are rude & argumentative, the problem being that a lot of overseas backpackers are employed as waitresses & seemingly because they are only working there short-term they have very snarky attitudes & really...
