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.

Several friends and I decided to meet in Berrima for a catch up. We were warmly greeted and asked if we were having breakfast or morning tea. Both we said. The waitress was lovely and gave us our menus, a couple went in and looked at the desserts on offer. I ordered mushrooms on toast and the others had the... More

We were on our way to Canberra when we took a wrong turn and found driving near Berrima at around morning tea time so we stopped here. And the array of delicious gourmet food is amazing. I had croissant bread and butter pudding served warm with ice cream and my mother had a hazelnut meringue gateaux... both were delish and... More

Not good. Told after we ate that there was no eftpos. Cash only. Really! In this day and age. Possibly one for the ATO.

My wife & I had a lovely breakfast at this cafe. The staff are very helpful and the servings are awesome. Although the price is a bit pricey but still a great place to have a break.
