We travelled to Boranup for a look at the forest and a few scones. The food came very quick, as did drinks. The café hound, Red, is still not there, same since 2015, but a worker told us that he was at another restaurant. Overall,...More

Leaving Augusta in WA and after the Boranup Karri Forest, we came across Cafe Boranup. A cafe just off the main road but well worth a visit. Beautiful food, generous servings, reasonable prices and happy staff. The gallery next door is also excellent with many...More

Great coffee, great food, great service. Lovely setting in the bush. Although this didn't apply to me, they serve a free drink to breastfeeding mums!

Rare to find such a sunny afternoon mid-winter... and our ride through the magnificent karri forest set the scene for a great lunch at Cafe Boranup. I ordered the Calamari... and my wife relished her Fish Soup with a savoury scone. That latter meal must...More

A lovely setting in the forest with nice food. The fish and chips were really fresh with perfectly cooked chips and a delicious salad. All would be pretty idyllic except that perhaps they fall into the trap of catering to the staff rather than the...More

Thanks for your review. Next time you visit, please just ask the crew to turn the music down to hear the birds outside. It's no problem. Regards Cindy

We sat on the outside deck, well rugged-up, for the pleasure of sitting amongst the tall timber and greenery. The setting is very close-to-nature and peaceful. The building looks good, the staff were friendly, and the coffee was fine. A good wayside stop.

The setting is magnificent and the staff truly make this place. Had THE best breakfast here. Baked eggs are a sensation. Loved it. Something a little different from the usual breakfast fare. Recommend this to everyone I know. And they always thank me for it....More

Lunch here was lovely. I had the Thai pumpkin soup and the boys had chicken burgers. Nice to be able to have the dogs sitting under the table with us. Beautiful surroundings.

No problems! Red, our cafe hound, loves a visitor or three, although he's currently having a few days off work, mostly chilling out at the beach with other friends!

Description
A cute little cafe in the forest, with the stunning Boranup Gallery next door. Cafe Boranup is 4kms South of Lake Cave on Caves Road Forest Grove, keep an eye out or our sign. Please go to our website for a map and GPS co-ordinates if that helps. We are friendly, do great coffee, make our own cakes and our lunches are hearty, delicious and reasonably priced.
