Called in here to get two takeaway coffees. The manager was draped over the counter serving the previous person. The same slouching went on throughout our ordering and then instead of starting to make the drinks he went off to talk to a rep. We...More

Brought the in-laws for lunch today, but ended up leaving without eating. This used to be our favourite place to bring visitors, but the menu now is uninspired and just too expensive for the value. Only one vego option, a burger, which is not acceptable...More

We stopped here with our baby on the way to Byron after a family member recommended it. The cafe is in the Ulmarra pub, which is a beautiful setting. The cafe was really busy the night visited with plenty of locals. Despite this, our food...More

Found this lovely little country town on TripAdvisor, very small little town on the river. People are friendly and a few little shops: art gallery, bookshop and a few others. We stopped for the scones and it was well worth it, the scones were beautiful...More

Stop in Clarence Hotel. Salt and Pepper squid and chilli prawns beautiful. Salad dressings light and tasty. For those with a sweet tongue plenty to choose from. Best kept secret. Backs onto garden setting on the river. Do yourself a favour and call in

Opening Hours Breakfast and Lunch 8.30am - 2.30 pm (7days) Dinner 6.00pm - 8.30pm Tues- Sat Outstanding Coffee This is a delightful cafe/restaurant that provides excellent low priced meals in a setting on the banks of the Clarence River. It is right beside the Pacific Highway and is an excellent break point for those driving the Sydney-Brisbane highway. We have eaten there twice in the past week and were most impressed. We think it should be better known, especially as the service is especially friendly.
