Such a lovely space in George hidden away in the centre of town. The service was good and there is plenty of space to sit down and have a great breakfast. We only found out about the rear entrance on our third visit, it makes entering with a wheelchair/stroller much easier! The food is very fresh and great tasty. The... More

Meade cafe is a cute, quaint, quiet and boutique style cafe. The coffee is excellent and the food delicious. Highly recommend coming here if driving through the town of George and wanting a place to stop.

I went twice in one day, first for lunch then for cake and coffee. I had the chicken curry, my substitution request for the rice was accepted which was great but the chicken was on the verge of being raw as it still had a slimy texture. The coffee was awesome but the desserts/cakes my friend and I tried were... More

We just spent a month in George and this was our definite favorite! The French bistro feel was very inviting as you feel like spending the day in the beautiful garden and restaurant. We had breakfast at one visit. My Eggs Benedict was by far the best I have ever eaten. My second visit I had salmon that was perfectly... More

I've been to this place many times, one has a choice of indoor seating or if the weather permits sitting in the lovely courtyard with the fountain and lots of beautiful flowers. Are usually just have coffee, and the coffee is excellent, the barrister really knows what he's doing and they are making use of a fantastic local blend of... More

Meade Cafe certainly has a HUGE menu of teas, frozen take away meals, breakfasts, etc etc, but we were not brought all the menus on our visit. It can be a bit confusing, as there is just so (too) much to choose from. Also, is it a cafe or a print shop/office?? My baked cheesecake was dry, not creamy and... More

Lunch is a must here, its a quiet and tucked away spot great for meetings or simply a bite to eat. Service is prompt and the food is great. Highly recommend the mocha

We frequent this restaurant for an array of gorgeous teas - Sencha Champagne (green tea), Falling in Love Again (fruit tea) and Crispy Dream (fruit tea) being our favourites. The inside seating is cozy for cooler days or you can sit outside in a beautiful garden setting which is our personal choice if the weather permits. The food looks lovely... More
