We had coffees and hot chocolate here (did not eat here so cannot comment on food). Great atmosphere and quick service. Really different cafe loved the decor with all the book shelves filled with old books.

We have visited the restaurant most every trip to Bowral as we like the atmosphere and the food was good. This time I had to send my Lamb-burger back to the kitchen as it was burn't on one side and raw on the other. I then ordered a simple chicken wrap at half the cost then forgot to tell the cashier and so paid the extra... :(

Cafe has interesting decor with old books all around the cafe like a library. I had the pie made on site which was excellent. Only downside is that order took ages to arrive 45 minutes worth a try if you are not in a hurry.

We have visited this place on every trip to Bowral as we love the decor & it has a really good feel. The dishes are on the more pricey side but they are good quality. In the past the female owner running the business seemed to have the place running well & professional. On this latest visit, she was not present & the service had definetly slipped. It took nearly 15 minutes just to get the waitress to take our coffee order & another 15 minute to get the coffee & cake. They were not busy so it was all rather odd compared to the professional way things had gone in the past. They kept apologising.....but it was just pretty sloppy service. They didn't even bother bringing water out as in the past. So I hope this place lifts its game as it is too nice a set-up to be spoiled by poor service.
