Had breakfast here, worst ever whilst the service was friendly the food needs a lot of work. Staff continued to clean with vacuum cleaner throughout the entire meal so the plan of a quiet breakfast was not meant to be. Both ordered big breakfast but could not finish due to the hair in the food and oil on the plate.the... More

Stopped in for coffee. Great friendly service and wound up buying some homemade bread to have with the coffee. Worth the stop!

Rosti was lovely and it is a busy cafe. I had a glass of wine with lunch and my daughter a coffee. Lovely food and nice environment near the gas fire place and the adjoining shop with hats to have a peek at. Again, prices are a bit on the high side for what you get.

Both of us had pumpkin soup with macadamia nuts. We both enjoyed. Pies going past looked great. Service was attentive even when busy. Great basic cafe. Coffee and tea were good

We arrived late afternoon and enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea. Coffee is expertly prepared and the limited "afternoon tea" menu is decadent; I can highly recommend their apple pie! Despite being close to closing time, we weren't rushed and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

We ate here for lunch at about 1:40pm. We got seated by a young girl who mumbled we have no risotto left. At this point we were concerned about our choice. We managed to find something on the menu but I will say it was a little more expensive than we had noticed at other cafes for the area. We... More

Of all the cafes in Katoomba, we unfortunately stumbled into this one! We were told there would be a 20min wait for food...understandably it was a rainy unday morning, relatively busy. But coffee took forever and they didn't even bother with bringing us water while we waited. We ordered the big breakfast and when it arrived there were no hash... More

Visited the hatters cafe with my husband and 2 children for lunch, waited 40 minutes for food, the waiter serving us was rude when we asked how much longer. The meals were nice yet the coffees were served lukewarm and kids milkshakes came out after we had all finished our meals, I will not come back after this experience.
