Wife loved the steak sandwich and the kangaroo burger was flavorful and delicious. Didn't even know I was eating kangaroo. Coffee was legit too.

We went here for lunch, the staff were nice and we were served quickly. Food was good, a bit too much salad, but the stand out was the chips! Perfectly cooked with lovely seasoning, I would stop in here just for the chips anytime.

The only nice thing I have to say is well done whoever is responsible for the yummy soup which was served with sourdough bread. Pasta was very bland.

The staff are always very friendly when ever I have dined in, on this occasion it was a quite morning and I was dining alone for a big breakfast, the staff member had a lovely chat with me and loved seeing them address and know local customers orders.

We stopped here for Iced Coffee, a friendly waiter seated us immediately, we placed our order and received our drinks rather quickly considering the large number of people. It was very organised and friendly compared to many other Cafes on the mall.

I decided to eat the chicken pasta and at the time it was yummy. About an hour or so later I started getting stomach cramps and ended up with food poisoning! For days I was sick. It obviously wasn't warmed up how it should have been.

Hi, This we take very seriously and I would appreciate a phone call so we could trace any problem that may have occurred. At this stage we have not received any other issues concerning the chicken pasta bake. More

Very mediocre food, kids got pasta and said they didn't like it. Nothing unusual there until I tasted it and realised it was just warm slop. With the high turnover of tourists I guess they don't have to worry about people making a second visit. Save your money and go elsewhere.

It's a real shame that you didn't let us know so we could have replaced the warm slop with something more to your liking. We treat all customers equal and look forward to serve customers on their next visit. More

Yes you get hand-cut chips which is a winner on top of good-quality produce and a good variety of dishes. It is true the prices are on the high side but places in relatively downmarket Katoomba charge the same for much less ambience and worse food! It's perched on a high-foot traffic spot that can get congested and strangely you... More

This cafe churns over the meals one after the other......but the food is good, there's huge variety, something for everyone, it's incredibly fast and most importantly, really tasty! It is a little more expensive than you might expect of an average cafe, but id definitely return. It's the best burger I've had in a long time, although for the price... More
