Wow! What a find. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Service was friendly and efficient and it was quite busy. The breakfast was fantastic. Eggs cooked exactly as you like with a lovely selection of teas available and fresh juice. The bread/toast selection was also fab. Certainly enjoyed it all. So lovely and fresh.

Stop here reasonably regular and today I was by myself and the cafe was busy with a group of 10 to be served. The staff are friendly and the meals were ordered and arrived in a reasonable time especially considering the group of 10 ordered just before me. Will continue to stop here.

I have been stopping here for breakfast or lunch for a few years now. The service is excellent. The food is superb. They will change the menu to suit your needs. Very nice coffee. Plenty of variety. A fire burns through the winter and a nice bar to sit and read the paper.

Driving back from Orange and dropped in for lunch. Busy but scored a table. Quick service, had the fish, chips and salad which was lovely. Cappucinno was lovely and actually made to specifications! I live the ceiling here.

My husband and I would always pop in to the Wattle Cafe to have breakfast whenever we were staying overnight in the mountains, hence we decided to pop in for breakfast again. Unfortunately the staff seemed all over the place, we had to wait a while to be seated (there were clearly tables available). Once we finally ordered our coffee... More

Unbelievable! Highly recommend this restaurant! On our way back from Bathurst races with the wife and kids and decided to take a break from the traffic in Blackheath and it was such a good choice to stop in. Service was great and the food was even better. Definitely returning

I have loads of food allergies and intolerances so upon looking at the menu I asked if I could get them to make me up a salad with things I could see on the menu that I could eat. The waitress took my dietary card & note paper then returned with our drinks and a definite yes for the salad.... More
