Great customer service. Food was amazing, fresh and tasty.... This place was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint.... Off to wander the art gallery afterwards. A superb few hours. Oh and I can't forget about the views.... Simply beautiful... 😃

After hearing glowing reports about the Tweed Art Gallery featuring the famous artist Margaret Olley's replica house, my husband and I set off for a drive from Brisbane. We arrived at about midday and decided to enjoy lunch before viewing the gallery, as we could see the cafe was becoming very busy. We were seated fairly quickly but we were... More

Caravaning friends from interstate were visiting and we met at the café for lunch. I thought the selections were abit limited and pricey. We only wanted nice gourmet sandwiches on a breadroll or fresh gourmet wraps but nothing available in this range except a ham and cheese sandwich. The other lighter selections jumped to a $16.90 price or higher.We were... More

Hello there Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are not sure if you visited on a weekend day, if so we do experience longer waiting times due to the number of guests in the cafe. If not, we apologise if you waited up to 10 minutes for a wait person to attend to you. However,... More

Service is a little slow, but the meals are lovely, but not cheap. The gallery makes up for that though with wonderful art displays and magnificent views across the valley.

I asked for a meal without the advertised ruby grapefruit as my medication strictly forbids this. My meal arrived with the grapefruit obviously mixed in it.I pointed this out to the waiter who went off to 'talk to the chef' about it. We never saw him again! It was a Thursday and the restaurant was not overly busy, no excuse... More

The menu offerings are good but expensive. The service can be medium to slow but the view is great and if you need a sit, before experiencing another room of art, stop in and shout yourself a coffee. Spending time absorbing the view of Mt Warning and the Tweed river will not be time wasted.

With a panoramic outlook across the lush Tweed Valley to the Border Ranges beyond, Tweed Gallery Café offers a unique dining experience with one of the best views in the region.

Located upstairs at Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre, the café seats up to 100 patrons and is open for breakfast, lunch and light snacks from 9am until 5pm, Wednesdays to Sundays. The café pavilion is also a breathtaking space for hosting weddings and events, and parties of up to 160 seated guests or 200 cocktail-style can be accommodated within the café premises and/or the adjoining gallery foyer area.
