“Best Coffee”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

My husband and I are locals and are regular visitors to Fresh, love the coffee, it tastes almost like caramel. The breakfasts are awesome and the poached eggs are always soft!! The lunch time specials can also be really tasty. The only thing is the service can occasionally be a bit haphazard.

“Terrific coffee and service”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

They serve beautiful coffee - offer different varieties and are members of the 'slow food' movement.
Had several coffees here during our visit to Blue Mountains and breakfast.
Lovely fresh food offered with a good varied choice - and happy to vary menu to suit individual requests.
Could easily settle in here for the day!!!

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

We had been recommended this cafe from friends in Sydney. The concierge at the hotel we stayed at in Katoomba also said he got his coffee from Fresh. We had breakfast and loved the home made bread, poached eggs and grilled proscuitto. Perfect sized portions and great coffee. Well done!

“Excellent!!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

We dropped by Fresh (at Leura, not Katoomba), and had a most amazing meal!

We ordered a lamb burger (sublime), and a tandoori burger (again, amazing), plus tea - and were blown away by the quality of the food. For the price we paid, the portions were good, and the taste was absolutely delicious - a real find!

Amazing food, at a pretty good price - always a good combo!

“We Always Come Back”
Reviewed May 24, 2011

Whenever we are in the mountains we call in on Fresh at either Katoomba or Leura. The all day breakfast menu is excellent (try the ricotta pancakes!!) and their lunch specials are beautiful as well although servings can be a little on the small side. Try the blackboard specials too. It's always busy. Katoomba has less room and can be noisy due to coffee machines but I love the atmosphere. Leura is a bit more roomy and relaxing in my opinion so pick according to your mood I suppose.

Coffee is excellent and recommended. Service is professional but can suffer a little bit with busy times. Magazines and papers are available and there is a kids menu and they are welcomed.

We love them both and one of them is always our first lunch or breakfast stop in the mountains. Highly recommended
