We came for lunch. The raw juice was amazing. The cake good. Coffee ok-ish. Lunch was WAY WAY - overpriced and undersized and not overly special. Basically, we could have paid the same and gone elsewhere, had decent serves, similar nutrition and higher enjoyment. Won't be back for the café. The shop's good though.

My husband and I are regular café customers in the Bowral area and I would have to say that this is our favourite cafe. The produce is always fresh, the menu is interesting with plenty of options for a fussy eater like me and the specials are constantly changing.

My husband is a coffee drinker and won't go anywhere else for his coffee. Even has his favourite barista; Amy!!

Love their Friday and Saturday night menu and highly recommend the special Taste plate. You get a selection a of their lighter menu options and makes a great starter. The young male waiter is so accommodating that he will even let you swap items around to suit individual tastes.

Staff are super friendly and nothing seems to be too much trouble. Absolutely love the two older ladies on their staff; one I think is the owner and you can tell because she has a real passion for her guests. Be warned though they do get very busy so be prepared for a wait during these times.

We are truly Raw & Wild devotee's and would recommend it to anyone wanting an interesting café experience.

We ordered a risotto and a polenta dish. The risotto should not be called a risotto. Risotto is a rice dish and when made correctly it is fantastic... this was a truly bad risotto. The polenta and mushrooms was, for a main mean with the hefty price attached, the size of an entrée and about as filling as eating three rice crackers. Appalling meal size!
Coffee was ok, not brilliant. Cake was great.

I love their actual shop but I'll never eat in their café again.

The service was friendly but no one ever came to ask if we wanted anything after the main was served and we kept having to go back and forth to the service counter. I wouldn't recommend this a café to anyone.

Every time we driven down south from Sydney we had a stop in Bowral just to go to the Raw and Wild cafe.

Last weekend we had a whole weekend in the area and we went to Raw and vild 3 times same day. Morning coffee the best in the area with delicious pastries. Lunch perfect setting in the sunny courtyard and the dinner tasting menu really impressed in the evening. The chef custom made a cheese platter to fit out wishes and the small dishes were all high quality with use of organic and local farm produce.

If in the area you have to go:0)

For a large meal, it was not too heavy, leaving plenty of room for dessert.
Coffee good, without being great and a nice selection of beers.
Staff were knowledgable giving good advise on the selection of food.
