We visited this café just to have a simple sandwich and a coffee for lunch. What we found was something even better.

We stopped at the Mushroom Café for lunch while visiting the area. The staff were very friendly, attentive and accommodating. We order fish and chips and a pot of tea. The food was delicious and served hot. The prices were reasonable. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend it to others visiting the area.

Enjoyed our lunch in this pleasant country cafe in the main street of tiny Bailingup. The simple menu provided a satisfactory range of honest Australian fare, and staff were friendly and efficient. Good coffee, too.

From the moment we stepped in until after we had gone, we had a feeling of a nice family cafe with staff that were ready to help, always smiling and friendly to everyone. The food was hot, tasty and on time. Coffees were the same. Next time we are in Balingup, we will be eating here.

We stopped here for lunch on arrival into Balingup with our almost 2 year old. The food was good, especially the cheese and bacon sausage roll. The portions are big, particularly the bowl of chips. Another bonus is the kids corner with a little table and chairs, books and colouring equipment.
