On our recent visit to Bright we came across this cute cafe . My husband being coeliac the owner went out of her way to accommodate him. Even though there were already several gluten free options on the menu she offered to put together a different dish for him. Wonderful service! Beautiful healthy produce.

Unique, delicious food, nothing fried in sight. Everything is homemade, better than your nana cooked.

Travel back in time as you sit amongst memorabilia form the 50s onwards. Great soundtracks on the record (!) player. Real serviettes! Fantastic food, accompanied by wonderful, friendly service. A real treat!

This lovely spot has the homely touches you might expect in your nanna's house. But nanna is unlikely to have prepared pulled pork, pickled Asian vegetables and poached eggs for breakfast. Delicious. Coffee is excellent.

During our short break in Bright, we returned to Coral Lee and were not disappointed. This is still the best Cafe in Bright. The coffee is very good, the cakes and meals excellent and the ambience inside by the fire is perfect. We also loved the sunny courtyard (dog friendly) when we were lucky enough to see some sun.
