I went to the Ginger Baker on the suggestion of a friend with great expectations, only to be disapointed on the quality of service and the poor produce. The waitress was ill mannered and abrupt. The coffee was lukewarm and half strength at best. Very Dissapointing will not be returning after the bitter taste left after this visit.

We stopped here for brunch choosing an outdoor table overlooking the park. The menu has all the usual breakfast and lunch offerings. Staff were friendly and willing to vary menu items. For 6 people the cost was $130 which included coffees. The big breakfast was $19. Food is well presented and tasty. A lovely place to meet up with people,... More

We stopped by this great little bar/restaurant for some light Tapas style meals which we found to be awesome. Beers were cold and music from the live band just topped off the nite.

Food is still good but service is seriously lacking!! Wanted breakfast between 11.30 and 12 and they couldn't cater. So we went to Cherry Walk. Coffee still takes ages and staff are very unfriendly. Been coming to Bright for over 6 years now and the service has slowly dwindled over that time. The only real thing the Baker still has... More

Came here with a group of friends. I shared the pumpkin risotto with my wife and the others had calamari. The risotto was delicious and was good enough for 2 if you want something light. Had a cappuccino and it was quality. Service was quick. The outdoor back is well shaded with plenty of room. A good place for large... More

We booked a group of 14 plus a baby for a dinner on Australia Day. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the service was prompt even though they were busy. A great location right on the river. Food and wine selection was excellent with something to please everyone (including 3 vegetarians). We left the selection to the resturant... More

The Ginger Cafe has several different and interesting spaces for dining which are not immediately obvious from the road frontage. The quieter water feature area is relaxing, especially on a hot summer day. The area overlooking the Ovens River and water play park is also relaxing with more activity to watch. Our order was taken promptly, however, the time taken... More
