Food and Coffee was just average. We had dinner here several times over the last summer and it was amazing. Like really really good. Some much love was in the food. Where has that all gone. No more table service. Menu was completely different. It was a real step backwards from where this place was heading. Quite sad really

The food was nice, especially the muesli and poached pear dish. Unfortunately they don't do lactose free milk which meant that my partner couldn't have a much needed coffee. No table service either. Not a bad experience overall though.

Had a great meal at The Block. Fantastic, well priced meals and great atmosphere. If you are spending a week-end in Yamba and are looking for somewhere casual for a meal this place is well worth a try.
