We are so lucky in Bulahdelah that we have this great family run cafe. Best coffee in town and all their cakes and biscuits are homemade! You can also buy local honey and perserves inside. They also nearly always have gluten free cake options! My...More

We always stop here when we travel from Sydney to the north coast and vice versa. It is the coconut cake with passionfruit icing that gets us in every time. Its divine. I've tried to replicate it at home but although close it wasn't as...More

Delicious morning tea stop - homemade cakes, thick fruity raisin toast and good coffee. Only missing a toilet to make it it perfect stop!

Nice flat white coffee of good strength. I like my coffee to taste like coffee not too milky. This coffee fitted the bill! Warm & friendly staff on a wet winters day.

Can’t fault our flat white coffees, and the home made Carrot Cake was amongst the best we’ve had. However, be warned that this is a cash only establishment, which seems a little strange these days. The transaction costs saved did not appear to be passed...More

We are only a small family run cafe with a wide variety of everything homemade, ranging from sausage rolls and curry puffs, to fresh sandwiches made on the local bakery high top breads - burgers made fresh, Breakfast all day, Highest grade Vittoria coffee and all homemade cakes and slices made from local produce. We buy our meat right next door at the butchers and our eggs are free range from Sue at Windy Ridge. Our used coffee grind goes on our veggie garden and even the scraps feed our large guinea pig family and chooks. Unfortunately the building isn't big enough to have a toilet for customers to use, but don't worry, just across the road and around the corner are the toilets in the park. If you haven't had a chance to stop in since August 2013, you will find that the shop has changed a little. The owner of the building had to put down a new floor, which meant we had to get everything out of the cafe, including the stove and all the benches which was a huge job that meant us having to close for a week. Since there was a bypass that was just about to be finished and the main street had been upgraded, we decided to make the cafe feel a little more spacious and welcoming by turning the counter around. We still serve the same menu, some come in and have a look at what we have done if you haven't already! Travel safe and take a break at Bulahdelah, even stay the night by the river at the Lions Club Park where you can park your van or trailer etc for free! Follow us on Facebook to get updates of opening hours depending on Public holidays, or see what my mum has been cooking up in the kitchen at the cafe.
