Good coffee, small selection of cakes. Indoor and outdoor seating. Craft, jams and honey also on sale. Carrot cake was delicious but apple and raspberry crumble was not like a usual crumble - should have noticed it was gluten free and a vegan option.

Had a lovely afternoon tea with scones cream and jam after our walk up and down the falls. Staff were great, really pleasant and happy to serve you. Would love to come back.

This is the perfect place to stop for a coffee and snack. The staff are lovely and the area is beautiful. Situated right by the Purling Brook Falls, you should definitely pop in if you are in the area.

Great and efficient service - couldn't be better! We had the Pepper Steak pies with salad and they definitely hit the spot. One of us followed this with the Fluffy scones which were just as promised. We'd definitely go back.

We had coffee and scones and jam and cream but all the meals that came out of the kitchen looked great. It is most probably the best place to eat when heading to Springbrook to either camp, stay or bush walk.

We actually stayed overnight in this very cute cottage /Cafe. Accommodation was spotless and heaters were provided. Everything you would need for a couples getaway is here. Bathroom has heat lamps thank goodness as it was quite chilly. The staff are a credit to Anastasia....More

Located to the right of the entrance to the Purling Brook Falls with friendly and welcoming staff it is the ideal place for a coffee or fresh pot of tea, their pepper streak pies and toasties are both recommended.

My husband and I went into this café for lunch before seeing the falls. Its a great little café with very friendly staff. We had the pepper steak pie and it was delicious! I would recommend this place for the food, friendly staff, and conversation.

Hi I'm just a reviewer, not the owner. But pretty sure they weren't open in the evenings.
