After a walk back from leura mall I stumbled onto this house. Worth a visit and kids go crazy the arrangement and outdoor activities and seating. Lots of great displays of Ginger bread options to buy. All good and taste test is Devine and worthwhile.

A lovely little spot to enjoy a coffee and a treat. We found this to be kid friendly with lots of options available on the menu. Would definitely recommend for anyone passing through Katoomba and looking for a cafe/coffee shop with atmosphere.
