Lovely location for this cafe. We enjoyed watching a large group of guinea fowl out the window. We had pizza for lunch which was excellent. We had to carry on with our travels after lunch so we didn't get time to have tastings at the distillery.

What a pleasant surprise. Very rustic with panoramic view over sculptures in garden. Relaxed quiet atmosphere. Good choice of wines and lovely pizza. Very attentive waitresses. Would recommended for a different kind of lunch, gardens surrounding are beautiful and there is a little section with animals for children. Very unique.

Came in a little after 3 and they were closing up but very kindly found some yummy Lasagna and salad. Great choice of drinks (no surprise!) very clean and well laid out place. Glad I stopped by!

Arranged to meet a friend from Atherton here for lunch, I had spoken it up to her, Staff are nice and friendly, the view through the panoramic windows to the sculpture garden is an interesting experience with something different - every way you look. The lunch however, I was disappointed with, the salad I had ordered and my friends Pumpkin Soup both sounded enticing on the menu, I had ordered a lunchtime special, fresh local roasted pumpkin,rocket salad and decided to have added chicken as well. It was written on the specials board!.... It was nothing outstanding though- I've probably done better at home, But at home I use REAL Chicken, not shredded up chicken loaf.... Seriously who even uses chicken loaf, these days except on kids school lunch sandwiches. My friends Pumpkin Soup was also .....well just a soup!
We've decided to try somewhere closer to Mareeba to meet next time.

Hi pdn
Thanks for your review and apologies for the slow response.
I can assure you 100% that it is not chicken loaf. We coat our chicken in our Natural Evolution Banana flour, cook it in our oven and then slice it finely on our meat slicer. Your not the first person to assume otherwise however and we have now opted to cutting it into chucks for our salads and pizzas. If you visit again please contact is and I will be more than happy to show you the chicken and the process. Every single one of our products/ingredients listed on our menu is home made with care and love and we are disappointed to hear you did not feel it was to your standard.
Hopefully despite your bad experience you will come back and visit us again and try our internationally award winning spirits. Please feel free to email me on sales@mtuncle.com and I will send you a free tasting voucher.
Thanks from the team at Mt Uncle Distillery/Bridges Cafe
