Stayed in the mountains and popped in early at this cafe. Really busy bit like Sydney with a mountains feel. Really enjoyed the muffin!

This cafe is the right place if you want a relaxed and easygoing ambience. Magazines and newspapers encourage the visitor to stay and linger over their meal or coffee and watch the passing pedestrians wander along Katoomba Street.

We went to this cafe based on reviews as we had not been to Katoomba before and was a little disappointed. The coffee was good, but we got the feeling that this was a locals cafe as staff not overly friendly, cash only with no eftpos was inconvenient. The cafe was very small, lighting was inadequate and the ambiance was a little claustrophobic...sorry but the place needs a good tidy up, would get a takeaway next time.

Really good coffee - I didn't order any food but the cakes on the counter looked nice. Quick service. Best of all though is the ambience in this little cafe. Staff are relaxed, customers are relaxed. It is comfortable, lights not too bright and it is a little enclave of it's own.
Whilst there, I picked up a magazine from the bookshelf that was 18 years old!

The Elephant Bean is a very quirky cafe, the food is very good and the coffe is excellent.

Try one of the sandwiches on the menu they are great with the bread and many other items sourced from Homeny Bakery (the best in the mountains).
