I've passed through Buladelah on my way up the coast several times, and every time decided to stop at this cafe and enjoy some top-notch food. It's peaceful, visited by curious, friendly sparrows and staffed by helpful, courteous people. The food is your usual breakfast/cafe...fare, with plenty of options for drinks and tasty treats if you just want a drive by cake. Love the food, the location and the love put into everything. I'll be stopping by again next time, too!More

We stopped off in Buladelah for lunch, first stretching our legs with a walk up and down the main st. Myalla is an old cottage with a wide veranda, patterned ceilings and a plenty of charm, and was easily the most attractive eatery in town....There is also a lovely, well-tended garden out front and as it was a beautiful autumn day we took a table there. Both of us had wraps, which we shared - Thai lamb and Tandoori chicken. (We both preferred the lamb.) Coffee was good without being outstanding. I've had far worse on other country lunch stops.More

We ordered a schnitzel sandwich and a chicken parmigiana, The schnitzel was served with soggy bread and a chicken schnitzel was served instead of the parmigiana. Poor service and grumpy staff. I'd give it a miss next time.

Just had lunch there. Staff were very friendly and the burgers were good and homely without being outstanding. But the ice chocolates were on a different level altogether. Lots of chocolate, lots of ice cream, none of that crappy ice that other places seem to...pile in - what an experience. Well done!More

This used to be the place to make for on our trips. We stopped this morning and everything had changed. Gone the open friendly people and the food which used to be special tasted like it came out of a warmer. So disappointing.

Ate at this cafe on Saturday, had a bacon and egg roll and cappuccino, it was great. Retured today, Monday afternoon odered an other 2 cappuccino's in mugs and cakes. When the coffees came out they were in takeaway cups. Ask for proper mugs told...they only do paper. Mentioned that we had eaten there on Saturday with proper mugs and were told they didnt want to wash up any more. Thought the service and attitude was quite bad.More

Came in about 4 months ago and had the best breakfast, consisting of bacon and poached eggs with toast and grilled tomato Went in last week for the same meal, and instead of grilled tomato with my breakfast, recieved a ‘side salad’ that had lettuce,...cucumber, onion and carrot. Was not happy with it at all, looked around and all the breakfast orders being sent out had salads instead of grilled tomato. Don’t know about everyone else but when I order breakfast, grilled tomato is preferred over salad..More

We had a burger and schnitzel, and enjoyed our meal here. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful. We'd visit again.

Best looking cafe stop in Bulladelah as it has seating outside in courtyard. Looked to be only 2 stressed girls employed, doing everything in a busy lunchtime. Basic white bread sandwiches, less than average coffees. It could be great! The experience made me try elsewhere...on return journey.More

stopped in Buladelah on way home from north coast for a break from the M1. Decided to have lunch there and chose Myalla. Lunch was two simple sandwiches and coffees, we both loved the sandwiches, great fresh bread and so much filling and the coffee...was great. Will definitely be stopping there again and will recommend to family who regularly travel from the north coast to SydneyMore
