Beautiful food great service. Hubby had his first ever Alpaca pie and nearly licked the plate. I had salmon which was beautifully done.

A weekday lunch & the cafe was quite busy a little noisy but okay. The service was good and the food came out quickly.The meal was disappointing. My husband ordered fish and while it tasted good it was a very very small portion, l ordered...steak sandwich which had a rather unusual taste. Overall we did not really enjoy this meal.More

As a local resident of 30+ years my husband and I have had the pleasure of visiting a large number of the cafes in Mittagong and Bowral and found most provide good to excellent service and food. Today's experience at the Glass Cafe which we...have previously visited was unpleasant and upsetting. For the first time ever we complained about the slow service and were then abused by the staff with the young male staff member yelling at us at the top of his voice and inviting my 82yo husband to "step outside" in an extremely threatening way! He was obviously having a bad day but if the truth hurts, then maybe they should work on improving both their service and customer relations.More

Tired of the Soulless Service Centres We left the freeway for Mittagong and inspired by previous reviewers we pulled up the the Glass Cafe. Beaut place great atmosphere lots of local produce on offer jams peanut butter yes you heard right peanut butter! So lunch...was called we ordered the pumpkin soup was the special for the day wonderful ! Accompanied by a couple of slices of sourdough oh and did I mention the coffee it is from Mona Vale so not exactly local but yummy as anything so we grabbed a couple of Portuguese Tarts a bottle of the local Savignon Blanc some peanut butter and some raspberry and strawberry jam and headed back to the freeway... bloody terrific great service cheerful staff loved it!More

Well worth the small Hume Freeway detour. Meals all afternoon. Open for meals all afternoons. Friendly attentive staff. Spacious with large windows - nice garden setting. Prompt service. Excellent meals - steak sandwich (not overcooked) and warm chicken pumpkin salad. Well done all round. ◦

If you're clearly from out of town dont bother. They charge you a surcharge for coffee on a Saturday!

I’m afraid the surcharge is all about the bank fees nothing to do with being from out of town - we welcome one and all

We arrived without a booking but were greeted with a smile and from there the service only got better. Excellent food, excellent service. We settled on 3 different pizzas and weren't disappointed with any of them. Coming from out of town, and never having stayed...in Mittagong before, we would highly recommend this cafe.More

I have eaten out twice at this cafe recently, once for lunch and once for dinner. The food was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. There is lots of seafood on offer and it was lovely and fresh. We had lunch in the outdoor...courtyard on a beautiful sunny day but for dinner, we headed inside to the main dining room which is very open and spacious with a lovely view out into the garden. I have to commend the staff on their service. There was a small issue with my dessert. and when I spoke with the staff about it, they responded immediately and without question. I was dining with an elderly family member and when the restaurant became a little noisy because of a large table of guests, they offered us a quieter place to sit. This is a really nice place to enjoy a meal, lunch or dinner.More
