Staff are rude & unhelpful, food is average & overall maintenance of the cafe is poor. There are many other places in Orford that are worth your time & where staff are actually hospitable!

We dropped in for lunch. Food was ok. They forgot my order till i chased it. The seafood chowder my husband ordered was lovely. My fritata and salad was very ordinary. Not very impressed with Gateway Cafe

Called in to Gateway by the Prosser River bridge for an afternoon rest break and snack. Had a filo and focaccia, both tasty enough but had to settle for the former being warmed in a microwave as they shut down some of their cooking facilities...More

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed a pie with salad and chips, followed by coffee. All pleasing as expected. Walls had interesting pictures and objects to look at. Clean toilets. Good choice for families at a river location.

We called in for a light lunch but were disappointed with the service. We received our meals at separate times and our wine did not arrive. When we asked on of the staff for it it still took several minutes to arrive. No apology -...More

Definitely worth stopping here if you can. We ordered wraps and I've never had one so delicious before. Packed full and I will definitely eat there again if I'm in the area.

Mobbed by locals and tourists. Could be mistaken for thinking was last coffee stop on road. Good if you like a pie, but otherwise what it says on tin.
