This place is an institution in Murwillumbah with a long history going back to a Greek migrants creation of a soda fountain style cafe.

A cafe that is also a bakery is a winner for the fresh cakes and pies. The variety of food and drinks are amazing.

I love the seating of yellow and blue booths, the Austral clock (the word Austral + cakes = 12 letters) and the great cakes like the old fashioned cheesecake.

Check out the old photos on the walls too.

I love the Austral! It has been in Murwillumbah for as long as I have and longer. The Bun coffee is the best in town. The service is cheerful and friendly. I buy a takeaway lunch for work every day. The lunches are delicious. I occasionally sit for a meal. The quality and quantity is always reliably good.

The Austral is your old Greek style cafe with booth seating. The cake selection includes old fashioned favourites and more modern inventions. If you come to Murwillumbah you have got to stop in here.

A great range available from the wall menu. All dishes ordered by our group were very good quality and tasted very nice. Staff we encountered were all very friendly.

I enjoy eating at The Austral. It's usually quite busy, that's a sign of how popular it is. I look for the positive and find it easily here. Staff are pleasant n friendly. Any wait is always worth it
