Asian street food with style in the Blue Mountains. It’s hard to pigeonhole Miss Lilian Tea House in Katoomba, even with the myriad birdcages and feathered taxidermy hanging from the ceiling. It’s Asian street food but with a more sophisticated edge – in the menu, service and decor – and that makes it a one-of-a-kind […]

Leura Garage is one of the few restaurants in the […]

New café, bar, restaurant and retail openings in the Blue Mountains town of Lawson have made 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 Highway, there […]

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 […]

As the only Asian grocer in the Blue Mountains and with the most delicious Vietnamese lunch offerings, The Laughing Elephant makes the locals very happy. Sydneysiders don’t know how good they’ve got it with Asian grocers stationed on just about every block in some Sydney suburbs. Here in the Blue Mountains we have only one […]

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, […]

  What happens when a fine-dining chef and restaurateur try their hands at a pizzeria? You get premium quality ingredients, unique and delicious pizza toppings, and service that makes you feel like you’re at a hatted restaurant for a fraction of the price. La Famiglia in Wentworth Falls was, once upon a time, rated by one […]

We rejoiced when this place opened because it meant we didn’t need to drive an extra 15 minutes up the mountain to Anonymous Café in Blackheath for a hit of Campos coffee. Campos is reliably excellent because the coffee brand trains the baristas at all cafés using its beans to ensure they make consistently good coffee. […]
