Soup of the day (potato and chorizo) with sour dough was just what was needed on a passing visit through the Blue Mountains. The open fire helped too on a very cold day. Well worth the stop.

We were only there for morning tea but we were treated as though we were spending hundreds of dollars instead. The coffee was of good quality and the freshly made cakes we tried were delicious

Used Trip advisor to find somewhere to eat on our way through to lithgow. Glad i looked it up! The service was fast and the food was great. I had the steak sandwich with chips. The chips are yummo and I'd go back just for a bowl of those!! The sandwich was fresh and delicious. Filling too! My husband had... More

We went for breakfast and we were very impressed with what we received. When I go out for breakfast I alway treat myself to a big breakfast. Here at the Wattle Cafe, it is called the "Farmyard Breakfast" and it is $21. It was awesome. Everything was cooked exactly how I like it. Poached eggs were perfect - Runny (but... More

Steak sandwich and chicken pie were good although pie was mostly mushrooms with little chicken spotted. Chips were amazing. Nice cosy atmosphere but at the expensive end for a cafe lunch, especially given regional location.

Stopped off at Blackheath prior to arriving in Medlow Bath. My husband and I both had a toasted sandwich with coffee. A neat coffee shop. The tables not too cramped. The food was average and the coffee acceptable although not really warm enough. The staff were not overly friendly. All in all pretty average

This café is always worth a visit. The coffee is good as is the food, and the prices are reasonable. The central location is great. It's always a good place to go and get out of the cold.
