Overpriced, bad coffee, below average meals. A thorough dissappointment. I know now to check this website every time before going to new places.

The decor is a feast for the eyes. We had large breakfasts and wanted to try the pastries. Charming place.

There are any number of reviews of cafes in the Southern Highlands that seem to be quite happy with a bloody boring bacon and eggs breakfast when no-one preparing it takes any chances or makes any real effort. Our breakfast (two days running) was provided with what was clearly more effort than most, the toast selection was different, comprehensive (sourdough,... More

My wife & I were looking for a light lunch & thoroughly enjoyed the toasted sandwich with small salad alongside , with glass water each. Thought the fact that Cafe CASH only, a sad fact not suited to lifestyle in 2016. We had considered buying some of the lovely presented condiments but left them for this reason. One older lady...

The other reviews are pretty spot on. We sat down and were given menus then asked if we'd like a drink. I hesitated quite frankly given the prices and I really only ever drink water. As we were hesitating the waitress said I'll take that as a no and stormed off. We had to go order at the counter as... More

Lovely atmosphere, quaint, and the cakes looked good, delicious, BUT not worth the dollars you pay. Very very exspensive for what you get

Great cafe, met here recently with some friends, found the staff to be very efficient, friendly, food tasted was very good, did find drinks to be on the expensive side however what we had was enjoyable.

Sunday afternoon tea at the Magpie Cafe was most disappointing and a negative experience. The staff were less than accomodating and more than that, when paying $7 for a COLD pot of English breakfast tea and approx. $11 for two microwave warmed mediocre scones, they could have at least offered cooperative service. Despite being regular visitors to the area, this... More

My husband and I had previously visited this cafe and thought the manager was quirky and I nagged him to take me back there for the next installment of the drama and to have a lovely piece of cake. We checked what time the cafe was due to close and we knew we had left plenty of time (3hrs) before... More

In a relaxing town of Berima, this place offers a nice range of deserts. The coffee was somehow different to what we are accustomed to in Melbourne. Would probably go for a cup of tea next time.
