We had a nice meal of crocodile and a shared platter sitting in the deck overlooking the Forrest. A nice drive from Margaret river and some excellent places to stop off for photo opportunities on the way. Friendly staff and prices are reasonable

Good coffee, great location and a nice menu with a selection of tasty breakfast options and simple lunch items. Loved sitting on the deck staring into the trees - a piece of tranquility in a busy world. The location and staff make Cafe Boranup stand out. A beautiful area, and such nice people.

It was a surprise hit amongst the backdrop of tall trees. I had the chilli chicken burger and it was the best chicken burger I had for a long time. The abalone was pretty good too. Highly recommend.

Had a coffee and a savoury muffin after visiting the gallery next door. Pleasantly surprised with the eclectic menu and everything looked really fresh. Loved the sign welcoming breast feeding mothers, to relax and get a free drink!

Thanks for your review! Yes, breast and bottle feeding mums get a free coffee, tea, choc etc... it's a 'thing' we started a few years ago, and it's a lovely way to give back to our customers, who are, after all, bringing us the very newest of future customers! :) More

After a beautiful drive this is a great destination for a great coffee all baking done on premise and the lunch menu very innovative and looked great, a little out of the way but do yourself a favor and go

We visited this place on recommendation and were not disappointed. Ordered from the breakfast menu which has out of the ordinary dishes that were very good, eg Spinach pancakes with Risotto balls. Offers seating inside or outside, plenty of parking available. Friendly service. Family friendly as well as there is a playcorner for kids and the cafe encourages mums to... More

No Hi Lo milk for a skinny cappuccino and we were promptly told that they do not do any thing other than full cream milk because the owner was a dairy farmer's daughter. What that has to do with it, I'll never know. The owner apologised for the long wait to get served but then proceeded to go through a... More

Yes, we remember your visit. I'm not sure how the staff could let you know we don't stock skim milk or hilo other than promptly, and yes, I am the proud daughter of an excellent dairy farmer. We offer soy, lactose free, coconut, almond, oat and real cow milk options. In light of the dairy farming industry crisis that has... More

Nice and beautiful cafe in the middle of the Boranup forest! The drive to the cafe, you can to pass the Tall Karri trees and they are magnificent! Must try the HUGH scones - both sweet and savory are good!

Our scones are pretty famous! And the Karri trees, which we can take no credit for, as stunning. Kind regards and thank you for taking the time to make your review. More

A cute little cafe in the forest, with the stunning Boranup Gallery next door. Cafe Boranup is 4kms South of Lake Cave on Caves Road Forest Grove, keep an eye out or our sign. Please go to our website for a map and GPS co-ordinates if that helps. We are friendly, do great coffee, make our own cakes and our lunches are hearty, delicious and reasonably priced.
