We were looking for somewhere to eat one Saturday lunch time and this little cafe off the main road had a table for us. The food was surprisingly great for a little cafe tucked away in a courtyard. Friends had the soup special I had...More

Coffee outstanding. Perfect temperature & perfect consistency in coffee. Bacon eggs best in Australia and we have eaten breakfast out a lot. Crispy bacon eggs cooked to perfection and thick white toast with colour not just warm. Service with a smile and couldn't do enough...More

This is a small but cosy Cafe at the end of the busy Bong Bong Street. You have not to wait long until you got what you had ordered. The staff is friendly.

For lunch or morning tea this place is one of the best in town. The coffee is very good and the meals are really great. Service is fast and done with a smile and a greeting.

Had a lovely breakfast this morning at this great coffee shop in Bowral. The best coffee, bacon and eggs I’ve had in a long time. My wife had the French toast which looked amazing on a cool Southern Highlands morning. Have been to this place...More

David C, My question to you is, if you purchased food from another establishment why wouldn’t you purchase drinks from them and just stay there?? And save the hassle and confusion of bringing TAKE AWAY food into another establishment to be consumed. Why? You can’t...More

Although service was a little slow - food was great. Eating brekky outside was lovely & the choice of food was very good. I had corn fritters with mashed avocado & poached eggs with bacon. A latte finished it off.

Very cosy and you can just imagine how it would be in winter. Greeting was very welcoming and service was excellent. Even though we only had a light lunch of toasted sandwiches there was a lot of thought given to their contents and balance.

As Geoff333 says below, it is ok for lunch but expensive. Bowral on a Monday is difficult for lunch and Cafe Rocca was one of the few places open. $22 for a lamb burger was expensive but it was a hearty and generous meal -...More

Had a great late lunch here on a rainy Bowral day. Service was very friendly and helpful and food came out promptly and it was very tasty too. Coffee was also great. Highly recommended.
