The Best Cafes in the Blue Mountains for a Gourmet Bite

Whether you are after casual cafe fare or elevated brunch bites, these are the best cafes in the Blue Mountains to try.

Sorensen's Glasshouse & Gardens

The Blue Mountains is a destination worth exploring for countless reasons, and one of our favourite reasons is the thriving culinary scene.

Prepare to indulge in wholesome fare and start your day right, savouring fresh local produce and supporting small businesses dedicated to creating a truly memorable foodie experience.

Join us as we unveil the ultimate guide to the best cafes the Blue Mountains has to offer.

Black Cockatoo Bakery

Black Cockatoo Bakery

One of our favourite things to do when we leave the city is hit up a country bakery for some crumbly pastries and fresh loaves of bread. Black Cockatoo Bakery makes this ritual even better, with barista-made coffee, hot drinks and warm cups of tea.

A beautiful spot for a rest stop, the display of sweet and savoury pastries is hard to resist, but the good news is they make for some tasty fuel for a day of exploring the Blue Mountains!

BLAQ

BLAQ

Known for its high-quality service, premium dining and hyper-local ingredients, BLAQ is hard to miss as one of the best restaurants and cafes in the Blue Mountains.

Located inside a beautifully renovated motel, The Kyah, BLAQ is open early for breakfast 7 days a week, dishing up some seriously fresh dishes, including eggs hatched from the property's very own chickens. Talk about from farm to plate!

Blue Mist Cafe

Blue Mist Cafe

This hybrid and oh-so-charming bookshop-cafe is the quintessential place to waste away an afternoon in the Blue Mountains. Grab a seat upstairs in the bookstore, find a cosy nook, curl up with a cuppa from Blue Mist Cafe and get lost in a good read.

It doesn't get much better than this, particularly on a cold winters day!

Megalong Valley Tearooms

The Megalong Valley Tearooms

In the 20s and 30s, the Megalong Valley was home to nine tearooms. Today, there’s just a handful left, and a cuppa at The Megalong Valley Tearooms is well worth a visit. As you look over the rugged mountains, you’ll be served Devonshire tea and scones with clotted cream.

If scones aren't your thing, the all-day breakfast and lunch menu will be sure to have something to satisfy your cravings, with all the classics available, along with great coffee.

A beautiful, calm space warmly welcomes visitors in for a warm cup of coffee, and when the weather permits there's seating outdoors to soak up the sunshine and that crisp Blue Mountains air.
