Description: Elephant Boy Cafe, proudly born in Bowral. Located right in the middle of the Main Street of Bowral, we offer an eclectic though cozy place to enjoy a brilliant coffee, or sit down to breakfast, brunch, or lunch 7 days a week. The business has been sourcing and employing locally for more than 15 years. We look forward to seeing you soon.

A shadow of its former self. Once a giant in the cafe landscape of Bowral, EBC is now unrecognisable, though still masquerading under the old guise. If the foodie police were operating in this quaint, alluring village, there’d be an investigation for overpricing and under-delivering. Small, unimaginative dishes at a premium. Sobering and underwhelming it’s stamped never-to-return.

Lovely atmosphere . This cafe is right in the heart of Bowral. We visited it twice on our recent visit - firstly for delicious scones for morning tea and then met a friend there for lunch the next day. Great service and we enjoyed the food.

On a Sunday drive to Bowral we came across this quirky little cafe. Loved all the books and bookshelves and the simple menu seemed to offer enough choices. I had the grilled chicken and haloumi salad and my hubby had the pork and pickles sandwich on sourdough. With 2 coffees the bill came to about $60 which included a 10% sunday surcharge. Overall very happy and will return.

What has happened here? This was a ‘ must visit ‘ venue.
Now you wait 30 minutes for a coffee and toasted sandwich on multigrain. I was able to read the 1970 World Almanac though! Service obviously came from the same era!
The coffee arrived cold and the toasted sandwich was a cheesy melt. Thick sliced white bread, passed over a toaster at some stage of its preparation, covered in just melted cheese and served with unripened tomato slices and a sliver of ham. Nine bucks ! A total fail. We should have walked out.
Last visit by this customer!
