This place is easily accessible at the main street of Katoomba. They have an elaborate menu, and is perfect if you're looking for good coffee and a hearty brunch. Their waffles are fresh and fragrant, their bacon was tasty. I tried a veggie sandwich which...More

I visit here semi-frequently for coffee or a snack & have always found the food, coffee & customer service to be of great quality. Home made waffles, locally sourced coffee & a plethora of tea choices. They easily cater for meat eaters, vegetarians & vegans....More

Staff always attentive and helpful. Coffee is fantastic - especially first thing in the morning when I come past at 7am - a welcome sight. Plus waffles - who doesnt love waffles for breakfast - great place to bring kids

Good coffee to be had here, and if you are taking away, the cups are beautifully decorated and organically made so as not to harm the environment. Waffles are worth coming for, especially the chocolate waffles.

Visited with friends for brunch on the long weekend Monday. Great staff. Great service. Great coffee. Great barista. Such a nice atmosphere. Food was filling & enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit.

A terrible disappointment. If a business holds itself out as a "waffle" bar, it is reasonable to expect that they cook their waffles from batter. To be dished up stale, packaged waffles was unbelievable.
