The food and coffee was amazing (especially the scones). I would highly recommend eating here especially with the added treat of seeing the dish.

Great cafe at the "Dish", walked in for a coffee and spotted a pie cooked on premises, one of the best I've had in our travels. My wife had scones with a home made berry jam... sensational! And the coffee was lovely too. A hidden...gem, we done to the lovely staff. And, my favourite bird dropped in for a visit.More

We were welcomed by Cafe staff after signing in for Covid safety. The air-conditioned Cafe was very much appreciated on a 38 ° day. We refreshed ourselves with juice whilst looking at the dish. Staff were attentive, friendly and we enjoyed the experience.

There are lots of options; healthy, unhealthy, vege/vegan, gluten-free, even alcohol. Strict COVIDSafe measures are in place - and it air conditioned which was great because it was 38 degrees when we went! I had the scones and they were some of the best scones...I have ever had. My partner had the orange almond cake which was lovely and moistMore

Had been told by local and people near where I live about the scones at this place. Yum Yum and Yum some more is best way to describe these. Our table also had some Pancakes that were equal to the scones. Nothing to fault Need...to also add that this brunch style meal was the single best meal we had in Parkes over 2 full days as other restaurants and cafes fell heaps short of expectationsMore

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon visit to the cafe. The scones were fresh and warm and the pancakes were delicious (and a generous portion too!). Very friendly staff and a great location.
