Berrima is that great halfway stop on the way to Canberra. This place is such a cost cute set up with good service. The food is amazing, so good that we actually come back the next day for lunch again! Day 1 we had the skewers and chicken curry, nice light lunch very fresh ingredients. On the second day we...

The choice of Berrima for a catch up dinner with friends and a recommendation from locals caused us to choose Josh's. Even with indoor capacity of around 40 as well as outdoor seating both front and back a booking was necessary for Saturday evening dining. A very good and reasonably priced wine list, a varied and vary tasty menu reflecting... More

A very different menu to what I am used to ordering off but we were pleasantly surprised by the flavours. The highlight was the zucchini flowers, stuffed with beetroot, goats cheese and pine nuts is a must try

Josh's Cafe was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. We had made a booking which we were pleased we did as it appears Josh's cafe is very popular. We were warmly welcomed, our service was friendly, not pushy & food delicious. Josh seemed disappointed that he did not know we were there to celebrate my Birthday until... More

I had dinner on Thursday evening for my birthday. Fabulous service from Mark, the food was good, great zucchini flowers! I've only been for lunch before so first time for dinner, cute & cosy atmosphere. It was locals "byo" night too so we brought the Veuve to celebrate! Thanks for a nice evening Josh's

We visited Josh's Cafe for a Saturday lunch on a day trip from Sydney. The café is set in the heart of Berrima. We arrived without a booking and were seated immediately by attentive staff. The café has a restaurant feel with tablecloths and excellent table service and is fully licensed with a good selection of wines from local and... More

I have head mixed reviews of Josh's - but I was pleased with everything on offer. It is a small space - cosy. The tables are close together but the acoustics of the room allow for conversation where you don't have to shout at the person across the table for you which is the curse of modern dining these days....

Interesting and Tasty menu. Staff were great. A little cramped but it was 23 December. Bit on the expensive side for cafe style food.
