As we were staying in Bright with our dog, we found this cafe just on the edge of the shopping precinct and dropped in for a coffee and as they also dog friendly we choose an area outside. The coffee was very good, the cakes were also very good, and as it was our dogs birthday she received a free... More

Came here for breakfast and enjoyed the scenery and its qwerky charm. Flat whites weren't the best I've had but everything else was lovely! Wine menu also looked good 😏

Arrived at Ginger Baker feeling tired and dusty after a bush festival. Hanging for some food that wasn't served on a paper plate, this didn't disappoint. Awesome service, great selection of wines by the glass, stunning location alongside the river, and the food was simple but delicious. Great ingredients, prepared well. Will be out first, casual dining port of call... More

We stopped in Bright to have a little bite as we were travelling home from Hotham and did not expect to find this gem. Beautiful little shop, was outdoors but protected and heated. Tapas style food was sensational. We ordered multiple dishes, the gnocchi was the best. Bright is a beautiful little town, Ginger Baker is located on one of... More

This is a gorgeous little riverside cafe. It is the perfect setting for a relaxing glass of wine surrounded by nature! We unfortunately didn't get to eat here as we didn't have a reservation but they were packed out the door on the Saturday night. We will definitely make a reservation the next time we are in Bright :-)

This is a great location to enjoy breakfast or lunch. Backs onto the river and water park so you can enjoy the view while the kids play. They also do dinner on Fridays and Saturdays.

Amazing cafe. Cute from the front, and opens up into one of the best outdoor experiences I've had in a long time. Live music, by the river, and great coffee and an outside bar. Tapas style lunch menu - good for sharing, or just a cheap and small bit to eat!
