A playful menu and premium coffee give this Blue Mountains café extra spark. “I’ll have the poached eggs and avocado,” I say to the waiter at Kickaboom café in Glenbrook in the Blue Mountains. I’m half-expecting an eye-roll at the banality of my order when there are so many other interesting things on the menu, but […]

The last thing Anonymous needs is another blogger telling the world about how good it is, but I’m about to. The café’s photogenic fare served on wooden boards makes it an Instagrammer’s paradise, which probably accounts somewhat for the fact it’s almost always packed – that, and it’s located on the can’t-miss-it corner of the Great […]

If I lived any closer to Springwood I’d spend so much time at Dbl Ristretto I’d have to start paying rent. It’s very hard to find fault with the coffee, atmosphere and food here, and while I wish it had wifi I suspect there’s a reason it’s not offered… to deter people like me from lingering too long!

When you’re on your own, it’s all about the coffee. With kids, it’s: “How can I keep these rascals – I mean, loves of my life – entertained while I enjoy a moment of peace?” Thankfully a handful of café owners in the Blue Mountains understand this parental plight and cater for both children and adults, […]

Three new café, bar and retail openings in the Blue Mountains town of Lawson will make bypassing this village a thing of the past. When driving to or from Sydney through the Blue Mountains you’d be forgiven for not really noticing Lawson. But for a pub and a row of shops-for-lease lining the Great Western […]

The Baker’s Wife café in Springwood has gone against the grain of standard café offerings, basing its menu loosely on the healthy food and lifestyle trend of paleo. That means goodbye cake and hello smoothies with curious ingredients like coconut yoghurt, spirulina and chia seeds; lots of freshly squeezed and cold-pressed juices, and vegetable-rich salads. For sweets it’s […]

With single origin, cold-drip and batch brews using Campos Coffee beans on offer, The Church has seriously raised the bar for coffee in the lower Blue Mountains. This dedicated ‘brew bar’ is set inside a quaint timber church on the main café strip of Glenbrook. In the morning, two glimmering stained-glass windows filter the sunlight, […]
