American pancakes to die for and great devilled eggs. Surprisingly good shopping and a great little art gallery with artist on duty. We took our dog and they were relaxed, even bringing her water. What's not to (really) like about this place?

Oaklands Cafe has the best ginger cake I've ever had, it's called Triple Ginger Cake for a very good reason! And it is perfect with the rhubarb compote. They have the recipe for this awesome cake (and many other yummo sounding meals) in their 'Coastal Seasoning - Recipes from Sapphire Coast Kitchens', published by the Merimbula Special Events Committee, who...

Oaklands Cafe has a great menu and it's setting is well-themed. It's great for the kids because of the animal area where kids can pat animals.

We stopped here for a quick lunch, it was a delight! The servings were generous and the food was delicious. My husband had Cajun Fish Salad and I had a trio of dips with Turkish bread. The Beer and Cheese dip was amazing. I don't usually eat fish, but tasted my husbands and it was wonderful! The atmosphere was relaxed,... More

The place is unique, plenty of parking. Lots of browsing around the plants and crafts for sale. The menu is excellent and its combination of flavours I thought was very good. Food was fresh and the whole presentation of the plate was great. My friend had a salt shaker lose its head into his meal and the staff whisked it... More

We took our family here for the annual get-together on Friday before Christmas. Three generations had a really tasty lunch, some boutique beers and cider from Longstocking brewery and great deserts. Finished with a walk through the animal barn. A great lunch venue for all the family.
