Our breakfast at The Hatters Cafe was one of the worst we've ever had. I find it so disappointing as I always believed breakfast to be a meal that is hard to mess up! My partner ordered the big breakfast and barely ate any of it. The tomato and mushrooms were extremely dry, the bread barely toasted and the eggs... More

Walked the entire Main Street of Katoomba looking for avocado on toast. Front sign here said avo smash, so we went in ordered our coffees which were a little on the weak side but nice all the same) then when it came to order our breakfast they tell us we have no avocado. So we order two breakfast meals, which... More

We ordered two bowls of muesli which can literally takes 2 minutes to prepare which turned out to be a 30 minutes proposition! No apology whatsoever from the staffs and the main server behind the counter even gave us an attitude. Doesn't even deserve one star. Would have given ZERO star if that was allowed. Only highlight was clean toilets.... More

I visited The Hatter's Cafe for breakfast and coffee. The interior and decor of the cafe is very interesting especially the photos of local artists with a hat on! I ordered for Italian scrambled eggs with breakfast. The serve size and quality was very good. The staff were pleasant and service was pretty quick for a busy cafe in Katoomba.... More

Had breakfast here, worst ever whilst the service was friendly the food needs a lot of work. Staff continued to clean with vacuum cleaner throughout the entire meal so the plan of a quiet breakfast was not meant to be. Both ordered big breakfast but could not finish due to the hair in the food and oil on the plate.the... More

Stopped in for coffee. Great friendly service and wound up buying some homemade bread to have with the coffee. Worth the stop!

Rosti was lovely and it is a busy cafe. I had a glass of wine with lunch and my daughter a coffee. Lovely food and nice environment near the gas fire place and the adjoining shop with hats to have a peek at. Again, prices are a bit on the high side for what you get.

Thank Michelle P
