We ordered the celeriac, kale and ham bubble and squeak which was 2 large patties each. Home made and worth travelling for. Finished off with scrumptious chocolate cake and good quality coffee. Friendly and attentive service. Home made 5 star for us!

I very rarely give bad reviews but this coffee shop really disappointed me. We visited in early September as I was craving beans on toast. When we came to order, my husband and son both ordered their food and I proceeded to ask for beans...More

Sorry to hear you do not agree with the way we deal with order taking - it usually works very well for us, but it sounds like something went wrong on the day you visited, we shall certainly look into it.

We stumbled across this cafe when trying to avoid going to a chain place. We were given a warm welcome by the staff, and they were so accommodating helping with high chairs for my one year old. It's a lovely cafe inside, really nicely done....More

Good table service. Nice coffee (a cup was larger than the usual size). The scones and tea cakes came with a lovely homemade strawberry jam. Good value for money. Great find.

We often call in for a coffee and scone. They have the best scones in Penrith. Plenty of choice for light lunch, morning and afternoon teas and coffee. Homely service with plenty of parking nearby.

Really sorry but we don't allow dogs inside. We have a couple of tables outside which people often sit at with their dogs, when it's warm enough!
