Lovely old style country cafe with live music on sunday, serving interesting food well done. I had a lovely beef burger with real beef not one of those awful frozen patties. The only criticism would be that they need to get their chips a bit crispier (if I want soggy want I go to Mc Donald) and get themselves better... More

Very much enjoyed our Sunday afternoon at the café. The food was good, especially the cakes & coffee, and the live music was great to listen to.

We have travelled all round and always stop here when in the area. It is the best food and coffee to be fou d anywhere. Friday night is the best place for a great dinner.

A group of 8 of us ate here on Friday night. Lovely setting in the garden (with surprisingly few mozzies etc) and the food was great. I had the tempura barramundi burger and thoroughly enjoyed it. The chicken korma also looked yummy and many in our group had the barramundi salad which looked fresh and healthy. Desserts were also quickly... More

We were on our way to Nimbin from Tweed Heads and found this a most convenient and pleasant place to make a stop. We sat outdoors in a gentle wooded setting. We had coffee and a piece of cake. The coffee was great. It is always a pleasure to get a really good flat white! We were a little disappointed... More

Dropped by for a coffee and breakfast, and was delighted with the food, service and bonus live music! Selected eggs hollandaise off a menu with a good range to choose from. The hollandaise sauce was done to perfection in a classic untweaked style, the poached eggs perfectly cooked, and an ample portion of spinach on the side....prrrfect! Coffee was also... More

Sadly, this is 'not' a great review. My girlfriend & I went there for a hot drink, but unfortunately, they didn't tell us that their Chai Tea & hot chocolate were both made with a very sugary syrup. I told them I was allergic to sugar & they simply shrugged & didn't care. We also had cake that was so... More

Mum, my hubby and I were returning from a trip up to Blackbutt Lookout in the Border Ranges one Saturday recently, and decided to stop at the Sphinx Rock Cafe for lunch. Amazing tasting and quality food...brilliant, friendly service...all at very reasonable prices. There's a great area set aside for kids to play in, lots of grass for them to... More
