It's a funky setting and a good relaxed place to hang for a while. Food was not too bad, bit patchy, as out of 3 of us, 2 of us were not that impressed. Some creative options available though. I do like funky, but when does funky turn to grungy?- and taking a look around- and going to the loo,... More

Friendly service, delicious food, great atmosphere. Based in the centre of town this restaurant really does feel like it is in the middle of everything! Always welcoming and a great range of beers on tap too. Have eaten here many times and will definitely do so again.

This place is very hip! The food and service is top notch! Immediate service and very doting. The coffee was very flavoursome. The best we had had in a while! The food was so worth it! Perfect poached eggs! Delish smoked bacon. Mmmmm. Dont miss this place!

I visited 5 Church this week for dinner and I would definitely go back! Cool place, friendly staff, pretty good menu... The filet steak was very good, but the mash that goes with it, FANTASTIC! Check it out, it's worth a visit and very good value for money!

This restaurant has changed hands many times over the years but the change has always been good. Love this new lot. The staff are more than helpful and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. The food is fresh and delicious and they willingly cater for alternatives for those afflicted with allergies. Air conditioning would be an improvement.

It's location is wonderful, close to the river, tall green trees and long tables for around six to eight people outside. Inside is a cosy cosmopolitan atmosphere. And now the food! I enjoyed a thali platter of delicious lamb, Dahl, yogurt, salads, Rosti, papadam and naan, much more than I could eat, but each bite was delicious, spicy goodness. We... More

Had the full fry up for breakfast--bacon was amazing, eggs perfectly poached and hash browns were delivious. It was also easily the best long black (coffee) I've had in Australia. Only downside I can think of is that there's no air con--but very few spots in Bellingen have it. Great, fast wifi too. Overall, a really extraordinary breakfast.

Good food, good produce, quirky and attentive staff and a very interesting menu. The chips are especially good - hand cut Dorrigo potatoes - there is a focus on local produce which I really appreciate. Also has a very good range of alcoholic drinks, many from local boutique breweries. Great place to dine with friends, and I'm told they have... More
