As part of the tour sold to us by AATKings, they brought us to this place for the included lunch. This was, by far, the worst meal we had on this continent to date. Pre-made frozen beef patties with drops of cheap cheese dropped on top served on mass-produced buns: meal summarized in one word: GROSS! Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!

On a cold day in Leura, and after a full morning of shopping, we decided to have a quick bite to eat at a 'Loaves & The Dishes' after waiting 15 minutes or so, we managed to grab a table for six...... It was worth the wait. I noticed that they turned over food very quickly, a very smart move... More

We had breakfast on Sunday morning and the popularity of Loaves and Dishes is obvious from the steady stream of patrons. They seem to have a simple and great system in place. Offer a simple set of options with a few upgrades and try to provide a short turnaround. It worked, great breakfast, cheap and within a short timeframe. Loved... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and got very average service and very average food. The beef burger tasted like it was from a frozen pattie. The chicken burger also didn't have much taste to it.

A lovely little cafe in this town. Quick service, order at the counter and then sit down and the meal came very quickly! A good variety of options for vegetarians too and wide selection of teas and coffees to suit all tastes. A fire is lit in winter which is nice and warming on a cooler day, and there is... More

Out two meals were cold in the middle. Really rude staff just microwaved it again and dumped it on the table without saying a thing. I think it's just setup to fill hungry bus loads of tourists as quick as possible. So many lovely restraints and cafes in this area no need to go here.

Strange service and mentality. Food really wasn't remarkable or that different from others in the area, and yet was quite expensive. Oh, and don't forget to help yourself to the fridge for the sparkling water and glasses you pay top dollar for... Buns are poor quality for what is a juicy burger...

Have eaten here twice now. Coffee is good, but the service is slow. Food is bland and unremarkable. I was not happy the other day when it is 1C and the fire is barely alight! Its freezing guys us Sydneysiders need warmth! lol
