Our coffees were made by what I assume was the owners child. They were quite young and so I was impressed by how they were making it. As a coffee snob from Melbourne, I can say that this is one of the best coffees I’ve...had in a long time! Thank you. Highly recommend (also the pantry stock is great!)More

Stopped for coffee and cake while travelling. Coffee was ok. Had a slice of cake which was rather small and un-iced, so I thought $7.50 was a bit steep. But the main reason I can not recommend, and would not return, is the waste. Everything...came in takeaway containers, WITH LIDS, despite the fact that we were eating in. If covid has necessitated takeaway containers, surely a lid on both the coffee and the cake were excessive. On discussing this later with my partner, he informed me that we were charged 50c for each of the takeaway containers.More

Hi Carolyn, thanks for taking the time to review our business. I'm sorry for your experience, we have very high expectations for our food and beverages and mostly receive glowing reviews. Our cakes are all made in house, from organic, and often local premium ingredients....More

Enjoyed multiple breakfasts and lunches in this cafe during recent work trips. Friendly touch from the owners and employees and great food. Especially enjoy the nutrient shots and home made sauerkraut! If passing through Coolah, be sure to check it out.

Beautiful place for a winter’s day in the sun. The flat white was wonderful- smooth, rich and strong- perfect. I had a piece of cake that was a bit like a pudding- not so good and quite expensive but the coffee made up for it.

We had breakfast there this morning. Because we were on motorbikes with a 500k ride planned,we didn’t want to have anything too heavy which was a pity because they have a fabulous menu. So we had scrambled eggs and sourdough. The eggs were just beautiful...as was the sourdough. And I loved the way they served the butter separately as butter curls. Just perfect. They have a really good range of drinks including kombucha which is brilliant. Plus their coffee is excellent. The staff were fabulous, very friendly and very professional. And there was a choice of sitting inside the warm cafe or outside in the rose garden. We chose the rose garden. Even though it was about 12 degrees at 8 am, we were sitting in full sunshine so we were very comfortable. And the roses were lovely. So highly recommended!More

Called into this cafe as we were passing through town. Ordered two flat white coffees and they had a freshly made cake they said was chocolate and olive oil. Well the cake was terrible. It tasted like the oil was rancid and the cake and...icing were tasteless and it cost $7.50. Service was slow and the coffee was poorly made. I would not recommend this place.More

What a delightful little cafe in Coolah, stopped here for morning tea/ brunch on our way home.I had the poached eggs on sour dough and hubby had the home made pancakes. Both meals were lovely, I especially loved the way the eggs were cooked, they...were just perfect! I am used to free range eggs and these were cooked so so much better than the ones I had in Mudgee the day before, and a very agreeable price. The pantry had lots of lovely items and products, all healthy and natural. Service was good, only downside there are no toilet facilities on site, you had to take a walk to the public toilets.Perhaps this is something planned for the future. Would definately recommend this little cafe, and would stop here again.More

Stopped in for lunch - friendly greeting and service; chose the two ‘daily specials’, which were so fresh and delicious. A ‘power bowl’ with beef strips, rice and salad with a Moroccan dressing - Yum! And NZ fish in the most light and delicious almond...and lemon crumb with chips (potato and sweet potato) and salad. Really tasty. They also had some great local produce, and gluten free etc products. Well done to the owners and staff!More
