Hi! Red dog is back on a daily basis. He was helping at another restuarant for a couple of weeks, but is now back to relaxing, collecting pats and cleaning under tables outside. Thanks for your review. :)

No problems! Red, our cafe hound, loves a visitor or three, although he's currently having a few days off work, mostly chilling out at the beach with other friends!

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.
