“Fast service, charm and responsive staffs, great foods.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We had our lunch here after we went to see Three Sisters in Blue Mountain and world steepest train. We have been served by 2 staffs, both of them were responsive, fast and very charming. We took the organic vegetarian foods also which was good. And the blueberry cakes were delicious. Spacious cafe, they display the foods in a row tabled bar. Have bottled drinks refrigarator in the right hand side which make guest easier to pick bottled drink. Located in most famous spot in Leura. Nice environment. Feel fresh when we entered the restaurant, not dark setting, bright, spacious and good arrangement of seatings.

“Kept going back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We spent a few days in Katoomba and like any tourist finding a good place to eat can be difficult... We tried Loaves and Dishes on our first day, and I think we ate at least one meal a day here for our 4 day stay! (We were becoming regulars! LOL) BUT - we kept going back because the food was good! And the service was great! Even when they had a busload of people arrive - they seemed to be able to cope pretty well!

If we ever venture that way again - we'd definitely be eating again at Loaves and Dishes! Thanks for the great feeds guys!

“Excellent - good food, good vibe, good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This place has a really nice vibe. A group of us went for Sunday breakfast which was fantastic. Lots of choice and more than happy to accommodate our requests. Coffee was by far the best in Leura. Would highly recommend and I would love to go back and try the lunch menu

“Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Called in for a late lunch and ordered 2 bowls of soup with bread as we only required a light meal and thought this would be quick, the soup was in pots and on the stovetop. 25+ minutes later a our soup arrived, the lunch crowd were mostly gone and all the staff seemed more focused on clearing tables than serving new customers. In addition we were given the wrong bread and it took another 15 minutes to cut one slice of bread to replace the incorrect one. Adding insult to injury a bowl of soup with one small slice of bread was $14.95 each, O.K. if it was gourmet quality but the pumkin soup was tasteless, I have had better from a can. Our 2 bowls of soup, 2 slices of bread and 2 small juices just on $40.00, I was expecting better given the cost.
