Great breakfast

Beautiful spot. Great breakky menu. Very tasty. Loved the timber look and feel. Only small issue is watching people standing around not sure what to do when they get there. But once your seated its great. Very tasty.

Had breakfast and coffees here. Nice owner/staff. Food was great. Coffee was great, but had to have two as they're a bit small in my opinion. Would go again as its set in a lively spot and food is reasonably priced.

Stop looking. This is the place. Good coffee is hard to find in bright. We have had several local versions of A flat white that defied any knowledge of a barista school. Not the case here.

Great coffee, best breakfast and plenty of space for our 4 legged friends sitting outside by the river.

Ginger Baker is one of our 'must visit' (repeatedly) cafes during our annual family visit to Bright. We only ever visit at brunch/lunchtime and always sit in the garden out the back, with a view to the waterhole. One reason we like the place so much is that dogs are welcome so it's our logical place to stop for coffee... More

Really enjoyed sitting outside with the river backdrop. :) Food was okay. Not really Spanish tapas as I'm used to it. But fresh and healthy options. They were busy on the weekend, and service was slow/intermittent.

We had to book a day in advance to be able to sit outside in the garden by the river and enjoy the tapas style menu. Everything was superb from the white anchovies, chorizo and squid, fig and blue cheese and prosciutto salad. The waitress was very helpful and described all the choices and advised on serving helpings. The dessert... More
