“Best coffee in town”

As a local coffee addict you will always find me here for my daily fix(es). :).

Best coffee - funky background music in a rustic setting. Foods pretty cool too :)

Beautiful coffee, delicious cakes and lovely staff. However service a little slow. Quaint location with very cosy blankets and outdoor heaters. Worth a visit

“Great coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Along with 'The Quick Brown Fox', Alby & Esther's has some of Mudgee's best coffee. The atmosphere is very comfortable, and the outdoor area is beautiful! The Cafe attracts a higher class of people, though don't let this deter you! This is not a snobby cafe - the owners are lovely and very down to earth people! Definately worth a visit!

“Great coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

Came here on recommendation from T/A and a local. Lovely little place tucked up the alley. Blankies to beat the morning chill outside or cosy little tables inside. Whilst the brekkie menu is limited (their menu is an all day event) the fruit loaf is yum, packed full of fruit and nuts. And the coffee was worth seeking out. Nice robust nutty kind of blend.

“Great coffee, great wine, great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

During a busy Saturday, we visited Alby and Esther's a number of times.

We dropped in before going to the Farmer's markets, grabbing a take-away coffee. As per other reviews, the coffee was excellent, so good that we dropped in again for a second one after we finished at the markets.

We'd spotted that they re-opened at 5pm and served some local wine and snacks, so dropped back then, arriving just at 5pm.

Whilst there we worked our way through the local Reds on the menu - which were all excellent, and also sampled the olives (which were served warm and were delicious) and also the Jaffle, it might not sound fancy but it was amazing!

We found the service to be excellent - we had a few chats with both staff over the two hours that we were there and both were super pleasant, very friendly, and very enthusiastic about their jobs - its really clear that they care about their business and want you to enjoy your visit. The place has a great feel / atmosphere, the take pride in it and it shows.

All in all great food, great drinks, and great place to be. Strongly recommended for both coffee and a few late afternoon wines! Thank you to all at Alby and Esther's!
