“Bumpy the Bushman is the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

A warm welcome,outstanding home cooked Australian cuisine just like my grandma cooked accompanied by a wonderful wine selection, this cosy cafe is popular with locals as well as touring visitors. In central Strahan directly across the roundabout from wharves where cruises to the World Heritage Gordon River depart. People queued waiting for a table both nights that we were lucky enough to eat there. On the second night, Bumpy unexpectedly gave us the remains of the bottle of wine we were drinking to enjoy upstairs.
Yes, three rooms are available upstairs. Our suite 1 was fabulous. A spotless, colonial styled chalet with a snuggly queen sized bed stepped down into a charming lounge room with a large television and wifi. Lying on cushions across the bay window watching life go by on the foreshores of the huge Macquarie harbour below was a brilliant way to relax and enjoy the warmth of this welcoming cafe/ accommodation. I have posted many TA reviews. Staying and eating here is a must do. Thankyou Bumpy- we left early and I was not able to do so personally. Yours is a genuine desire to make everybody who enters Bushman's feel like family- bravo.

“So-So”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Just came in for a hot chocolate and we were disappointed with the weak, hot milk that we were served. The lemon slice was delicious, but could have been a bit bigger for the $5 we spent on it.

Dropped in for a late lunch today. The BLT was fantastic, lovely atmosphere and very affordable. Great view of the town and down towards the water. Loved it so much we are going back for dinner tonight.

“Fabulous Find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Popped in here for a hot chocolate one afternoon and returned for dinner. Get there early though, as this little gem gets packed! Traditional home cooking with great flavors. It's a family affair and amazing to see how just three staff provided an exceptional experience, with humor, speed and excellent customer service.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Excellent food and wonderful staff made to feel like it was home would highly recommend this place. Just up the road from all the cruises which makes this an easy place to get to. Food is priced very well and the meals are a great size and you wont leave hungry
