It was a surprise hit amongst the backdrop of tall trees. I had the chilli chicken burger and it was the best chicken burger I had for a long time. The abalone was pretty good too. Highly recommend.

Had a coffee and a savoury muffin after visiting the gallery next door. Pleasantly surprised with the eclectic menu and everything looked really fresh. Loved the sign welcoming breast feeding mothers, to relax and get a free drink!

After a beautiful drive this is a great destination for a great coffee all baking done on premise and the lunch menu very innovative and looked great, a little out of the way but do yourself a favor and go

We visited this place on recommendation and were not disappointed. Ordered from the breakfast menu which has out of the ordinary dishes that were very good, eg Spinach pancakes with Risotto balls. Offers seating inside or outside, plenty of parking available. Friendly service. Family friendly as well as there is a playcorner for kids and the cafe encourages mums to... More

Thank your for your lovely review outlining highlights of the cafe. We try to keep a few interesting options on the menu, as not everyone is after just bacon and eggs! Hope to see you again soon. More

No Hi Lo milk for a skinny cappuccino and we were promptly told that they do not do any thing other than full cream milk because the owner was a dairy farmer's daughter. What that has to do with it, I'll never know. The owner apologised for the long wait to get served but then proceeded to go through a... More

Yes, we remember your visit. I'm not sure how the staff could let you know we don't stock skim milk or hilo other than promptly, and yes, I am the proud daughter of an excellent dairy farmer. We offer soy, lactose free, coconut, almond, oat and real cow milk options. In light of the dairy farming industry crisis that has... More

Took a day out down Caves Road and popped into the Cafe and Gallery. Good food and friendly service. Great place to pop in for a coffee or a meal.

Nice and beautiful cafe in the middle of the Boranup forest! The drive to the cafe, you can to pass the Tall Karri trees and they are magnificent! Must try the HUGH scones - both sweet and savory are good!

Our scones are pretty famous! And the Karri trees, which we can take no credit for, as stunning. Kind regards and thank you for taking the time to make your review. More

Hello. I'll take a minute to address your concerns about food portion size, which i do wish you'd bought to our attention at the time of your visit so we could discuss and perhaps rectify the issues immediately, instead of when there's not anything we can do to make your visit more satisfying for you. The Whiting is fresh and... More

Took my elderly mum to Boranup Cafe for lunch. I'd been there for coffee and lunch previously. Importantly too, the setting is beautiful AND staff and service is top-notch. We weren't disappointed today. I chose a steak burger with chips (fries). My Mum had a giant sausage with atype of chutney/relish and side salad. The steak burger was the most... More

Thank you very much. The crew/staff are top notch!

A cute little cafe in the forest, with the stunning Boranup Gallery next door. Cafe Boranup is 4kms South of Lake Cave on Caves Road Forest Grove, keep an eye out or our sign. Please go to our website for a map and GPS co-ordinates if that helps. We are friendly, do great coffee, make our own cakes and our lunches are hearty, delicious and reasonably priced.
