“Absolutely lovely!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We celebrated my Mother's birthday here.. most of us had to travel to Young. We had booked the "back room" , which was just gorgeous with its high ceilings, white tablecloths and napkins. We were looked after like family...nothing was too much trouble! The food was marvellous, the care and attention was amazing...everyone was delighted and most of all Mum was thrilled. Perfect!

“An Experienced Noy to Be Missed!!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

A beautiful day and sitting in the historic courtyard outdoor and indoor setting, is a treat indeed. The wide variety of coffees and especially teas in early Australian antique teapots adds to this experience. The friendly service and chance for a chat & find out other stories of the Historic Café Building & surrounding buildings opposite, creates a lay back relaxing few hours.
We had gourmet Lebanese bread sandwiches which had very generous servings..

Checked out the museum onsite as well. The vast array of Australian and local history is like none I've seen before. The first site of the "READING OF THE RIOT ACT" directly from the Parliament by special messenger, is near opposite the museum. A real historic location in Australian Legal History.
Will certainly visit this café/ restaurant again. Apparently the sunday roast lunch every so often is not to be missed. That will be my next venture.
