Arrived 2 June for lunch around 1 pm. Ordered plate with 3 prawn, capsicum and pineapple skewers for $20.90. Service was fine. Toilets were clean. Place was lively. At least half the tables were occupied by diners. Overall environment was pleasant. But the prawns were a total letdown. It had the soft, mushy texture of past-it's-prime seafood. You can get...

The best YHA Block bar/café in Australia. Come see for yourself. Many a review will verify this statement.

Our first time here regardless of our numerous visits to Yamba. We wanted a bacon and egg roll or breakfast and got it in spades.....wonderful. Simply the best so far....but the coffee was not so great. We saw alot of people eating here and assume that most breakfasts are very good....lots of locals seem to love it. I will return... More

The Henwood family must have a good lamb supplier because their crumbed cutlets (2 for $12, 3 for $14) are great as is the ambience, service, staff smiles, convenient location, menu choice, indoor and outdoor seating at their Block Bar/Cafe in Coldstream St

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.
