Really friendly staff and DELICIOUS coffee. Food is home-style and quite tasty. Cozy atmosphere with lots of personality - and I was happy to see some intentionally inclusive indicators - stickers stating they were breastfeeding friendly, a LGBTI flag. Will be back for sure.

This little cafe is a south coast gem. It's a family run business with a good menu. They are always friendly and helpful.

This visit I only had coffee and gluten free cake but the food here is great I love the lentil salad best . Honestly the coffee is really good they don't burn the coffee so it is never bitter. The gluten free cake was fresh...More

We are really glad you enjoyed Bennys, and much as we love the craziness of the Christmas holidays we are now happily calming down to a much more relaxed cafe which we hope you will visit again. Thanks for your positive review. - Jill A

Home-made cafe fare is getting hard to find, but at Benny's it's all there. Lovely array of fresh-baked sweets served with a dollop of REAL cream and sprinkle of Rose petals! Yummy wraps, toasties, and brekkie fare --plus a mondo portion of savory tart. Finally...More

Friendly service, clean and well presented. Would get an 'average' in cbd but is one of the better options for breakfast and lunch in Culburra. Pity about the location - adjacent to Woolworths and car park

Thanks for you review. I agree a beach view would be much nicer than Woolies but I'm glad you could see past our location to give such a nice review about our little cafe.
