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

A group of friends met here recently to check out the gallery and have lunch. Most of our group had the Homemade vegan brown rice and chickpea patty with avocado, coriander pesto, lemon date chutney. It was excellent and the serving large though a bit more date chutney would have been nice. Another in our group had the pumpkin soup... 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.

I visited here with my friend for lunch. The food was delicious, I had the veggie patties which I would highly recommend, and my friend had the frittata which she really enjoyed. The cafe was busy and we had to wait for our food for a bit but that is to be expected as it was lunchtime. Working in hospitality... More

I went to this restaurant yesterday afternoon for some coffee and cake. We were directed to the balcony part of the restaurant. We were passed by at least 3 staff serving food and were not even given a menu or acknowledged. We left after 10 minutes of being totally ignored. I would like to visit this restaurant again but after... More

Hello Raymond B We're sorry you felt ignored during your recent visit to the café. Clearly there has been some misunderstanding. When you arrived at the café, you would have seen the sign at the entrance saying: ‘For coffee and cake, please order at the bar. Table service for meals, please take a seat.’ When you told the waitperson who... More

In my humble opinion the food was overpriced but most disappointing was the service. It was non-existent. A companion of mine had the passion fruit cheesecake and she said it was dry. I enjoyed the slow roast lamb burger but it was overpriced. Come for the view and the art gallery but skip the cafe.

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.
