Perfect coffee and quality juices available for morning tea in a lovely cool setting with friendly service and prompt delivery of orders. The scones were noteworthy and could be the sole reason for visiting!

Called here on the way to Coolangatta and had a great brunch. The staff were wonderful and welcoming and the grounds and view of the river were tranquil and special. Called again on the way home and found it just as nice.

Great spot to stop any time of day. Old pub on the river with excellent food and accommodation if you need an overnighter.

Called in for afternoon tea and while they catered for DF & GF I couldn't get NAS sweets so threw caution to the wind and thoroughly enjoyed the very generous helping of the chocolate hazelnut gateaux. Almond milk available for my chai tea. Delightful setting...More

A surprisingly good 'hidden gem' in a beautiful setting, no matter what the season. (Indoor and outdoor dining). Well worth the diversion off the highway. Loved the salt and pepper squid and prawns with salad. Watch the boats go by on the mighty Clarence river....More

Opening Hours Breakfast and Lunch 8.30am - 2.30 pm (7days) Dinner 6.00pm - 8.30pm Tues- Sat Outstanding Coffee This is a delightful cafe/restaurant that provides excellent low priced meals in a setting on the banks of the Clarence River. It is right beside the Pacific Highway and is an excellent break point for those driving the Sydney-Brisbane highway. We have eaten there twice in the past week and were most impressed. We think it should be better known, especially as the service is especially friendly.
