When we arrived in Kempsey the first time in 1997 we happened on Lou's Cafe and had a meal. It was quite good. In March of 2018 we made our sixth visit to Kempsey. During each trip we have had one or more meals at Lou's. Always good. There is a complete and varied menu. The service personnel have always been pleasant and efficient.

OMG What a place to find....on a recent trip further up the coast we decided to stop at Lou's cafe for an early lunch after hearing Ray Hadley advertise it many many times.
Perfection would not be a strong enough word to describe this cafe.
The food was amazing and served hot and quickly to the table, split bills are no issue either which was nice.
The burgers were huge, the melts divine and the coffee - well excellent of course.
We enjoyed it that much we made a bee line back here two days later when travelling back down the coast...Late breakfast this time...the same friendly smiles as we were greeted by staff that remembered us...always a nice touch. Food to die for yet again and at a very reasonable price.
This place is well worth a visit...never been anywhere better than this for service, the quality and quantity of the food and the atmosphere.
No wonder it has been here for 40 years and it will continue to be judging by the customers who were here both times we visited....one of the best.
