I have stopped at this cafe for many years on my monthly visits to Berry for the market day. Always pleasant and welcoming. The bookshop closure was a surprise but clearly they saw their success was in the cafe and expanded. Just please don't loose the comfy book theme. This cafe reminds of two I visited in Washington DC and... More

After a walk around Berry and the many cafes and other shops of interest we settled on Our Book Shop & Cafe. What a treat and what a great place for coffee. Friendly staff, great atmosphere, lovely books, fabulous coffee and delightful scones with jam & cream. Just devine. The bonus was free wi-fi with no log in required. It... More

I'm not sure how they do it,if it's buttermilk,the way they caress the egg yolks or something else,but the frittata I had for lunch here today was amazing,I would have happily had about three serves of it. Just beautiful. And the coffee was pretty good too!

The vegetable frittata and coffee were lovely as was the Orange almond cake for dessert. Unfortunately the service was very much lacking the day we were there. The waitress wasn't paying attention and the time to deliver a piece of already made cake was 15 mins after the coffee. Hopefully next time the service will match the food quality.

Hi Tessa. I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal and coffee, but sorry that you feel the service was lacking that day. Our cakes are plated by our chefs in the kitchen (who add orange syrup and South Coast natural yoghurt to that particular cake) and so on a busy day it can be tricky for our baristas to time...

This little cafe is located in Berry on the Princess Highway. A unique coffee shop with its own collection of second hand books that you can browse through, it also has a lovely courtyard you can sit in, or if it's too breezy enjoy the inside areas. The food is very tasty and well presented and the staff are very... More

We ate inside but on a nice day, it's very nice to eat out in the back area. I had a poached chicken open sandwich and my friend had the croque monsieur with fresh orange juice. We were not hungry again that afternoon! Lovely staff and service.

Went for a trip down to Berry today, and boy, was it busy for a Monday! Mum has a walking frame and finding somewhere comfortable for her (& room for the walker) was a little hard.

We were able to enjoy two fantastic meals here last week. The first time we visited the kitchen was closing but they were kind enough to stay open for us (thank goodness as we were starving). I loved the open smoked salmon sandwich which was served on locally made sourdough. I am still thinking about this dish a week later,... More

The cafe is set in a lovely old, long & narrow building with plenty of seating options including a courtyard. We sat out the back in the library where there were bookshelves full of pre-loved books to browse and buy. The staff were lovely. The Berry Burger was great as were the milkshakes!
